Never Forget - 20th Anniversary of 9/11
Never Forget - 20th Anniversary of 9/11
As we approach the 20th Anniversary of 9/11, let us all pause to recognize and honor those who were killed in the attacks of September 11th, 2001. We remember all U.S. veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice, and especially those from our Navy Supply Corps Community who were tragically killed on that day—among those was SK3 Jamie Fallon.

Jamie Lynn Fallon was born in Towson, Maryland and enlisted in the Navy in 1996 following in her father’s footsteps, a retired Chief Radioman. In her five years as an enlisted storekeeper, Jamie had the opportunity to deploy to Bahrain and a three-year sea duty tour before serving as a watch-stander at the Navy Command Center at the Pentagon. 
Jamie was on duty in the Pentagon on September 11th, 2001, when the hijacked American Airlines flight 77 crashed into the building near the Command Center. She was part of a team of strategic planners, serving her country to keep all Americans safe. Jamie was a single mother and left behind a seven-month-old son, Kahleb. Kahleb would not get the chance to know his mother or experience her generous heart and zest for life.
Following Jamie’s death, the Navy Supply Corps School’s 3rd Battalion established a Memorial Scholarship endowment for Kahleb. During their graduation ceremony, the 60 members of the class presented a check for nearly $1,000 to the Foundation. 

The Foundation is particularly proud of our Memorial Scholarship program—providing an opportunity for our Community to generate college tuition assistance for the minor children of Supply Corps officers and enlisted Supply ranks who die while on active duty. Additionally, the Foundation contributes $10,000 to establish a Memorial Scholarship fund for each of the minor children of Supply Corps officers who die while on active duty.
Today, Jamie’s son Kahleb is 20 years-old and in his 3rd year as a student at The University of Iowa. Thanks to the many generous donors in our Supply Corps Community, family, and friends, the financial burden of Kahleb’s college education has been greatly reduced by the NSCF Memorial Scholarship endowment. Since 2007, the Foundation has provided more than $220,000 in Memorial Scholarships to 30 children of Supply officers and Supply enlisted killed on active duty. The Foundation is actively tracking 46 children of 27 Supply Corps personnel entitled to a Memorial Scholarship.
We are a Community committed to service. Your support provides the necessary resources for the Foundation to continue its mission, particularly in these challenging times. Your generous donation will keep your Foundation strong, focused, and ready to help our members—maintaining our great tradition of service and community. Please take a moment to make a donation in support of our mission.
