Lance Cpl. Jeremy Kane was a student at Rutgers-Camden studying Criminal Justice and Political Science. He had joined the Marine Reservists on September 11, 2006 because ”  he felt that every American had the duty to give back to his country.”

When his Reserve Unit was activated for deployment, Jeremy was hesitant leaving his mother behind, as Jeremy’s Father recently passed away from stomach cancer. Shedding his reluctance, Jeremy Kane deployed with enthusiasm because he knew it was the right thing to do. For this, Jeremy Kane made the ultimate sacrifice for his family, and country. Jeremy was an honored friend, son, brother, grandson, boyfriend, mentor and Marine.
