His military awards that he received during service were the Purple Heart, Combat Medic Badge, Good Conduct Medal, Operation Iraqi Freedom and the Army Achievement Medal. Kevin had a smile that would brighten up any room, and a personality to go with it. Kevin's sense of humor would make anyone laugh. Kevin was always there to help his army buddies any way he could. Kevin felt such a bond to his army buddies that even though he was medically retired from the army, he wanted to make Ft. Hood his forever home to be there close to them. He had a passion for fast cars, especially his Mustang. He had a tender heart, sweet spirit, and love for his family fiends, especialy his wife Lillian. He will live forever in our hearts.
