On July 28, Kevin Quinn of Mashpee, who served two tours in Afghanistan, was tragically killed in a motor vehicle accident.  He was returning home from visiting his wife Kara and their 3-day old newborn baby Logan at the maternity department of Cape Cod Hospital. He was supposed to be returning to the hospital later that morning to bring them both home to begin their new life with their daughter.

The Quinn family will receive a grant from the Military Friends Foundation to assist with funeral expenses for the young father.    

Tough Ruckers will also be taking part in a virtual Tough Ruck Memorial March on Monday, August 6th, as a final salute to the combat veteran.
