Sgt. Kennedy, of Norfolk, Mass., graduated from Xaverian Brothers High School in Westwood in 2000. He graduated from Norwich University, a private military college in Northfield, Vt., in 2004, majoring in computer science. At Norwich, he spent time away from his studies rock-climbing in the Green Mountains, and participated in a cold weather rescue team. Although he had little background as a runner, he finished a marathon during a break from military training in Alaska, running a respectable time his first time out. His lifelong ambition was to be in the military. He really loved the discipline, and the physical conditioning. Despite the risks, Kennedy made a commitment to remain with the Army for another six years. Adam was awarded the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and Combat Infantry Badge, among other commendations. He was 25.
