Makenzie Kemp Support Fund

Staff Sergeant Kerry M. Kemp was tragically killed in a training exercise on March 10th, 2015 along with six other Marines and four National Guardsmen off the coast of Florida.   A member of MARSOC (Marine Raiders) and stationed at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, he served two tours of duty overseas, one in Iraq and one in Afghanistan.  Kemp was a brave Marine and loved the Corps.  He leaves behind a stunning legacy of service to our country and we are all in his debt.  

SSgt Kemp lived off base in a home he built with his wife, Jenna.  He loved to play golf in his free time and spend time with his wife and his baby daughter, Makenzie.  

Makenzie turned 1 year old on March 22nd, just days after the tragedy that took her father's life.  At a time like this, it is extremely difficult to think about the future, but we must, together.  Consider a donation to help with any and all expenses that will come up. Please play a helping role in this little girl's future by donating.   Please share this via email, and social media.
