United States Army Sgt.
Ken Hess, 26, Asheville , NC

Kenny attended Reynolds High School and at the age of 20, joined the Army. He was very proud to serve his country and had plans of making a career out of the Army. Ken served in the 172nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team based out of Fort Wainwright, Alaska where he lived with his wife April. He was father to his 10-year-old son, Alex and a protective big brother. He wanted to have another child and grow old with April and watch Alex grow into a man. A scholarship in his name will educate others about honor and determination.
