West and Kraemer Receive Travel Award Commitments

Sky West Commitment

We are happy to announce that we have awarded the first two commitments of financial support from the memorial fund! The first two recipients are Skylar West and Ben Kraemer.

The Ben Jackson Memorial has made a commitment to support newly enlisted military by providing financial assistance to help them visit home from their first duty station.
