Pirate Spotlight

Specialist John Kennedy
US Army (ret.)

Retired US Army Specialist E2. John proudly served in the United States Army. In 2004 he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. He works very hard to keep his mobility, using a walker or cane when possible, and a power chair to reserve strength on outings. John's wife Bridgett is training to be John's dive buddy.
