Investing in our future.

The Kevin Bushell Foundation was created by Kevin’s family, fellow sailors and friends after his life was tragically cut short August 21, 2017. Kevin was assigned to the USS John S. McCain (DDG 56) when his ship was hit by the Alnic, an oil tanker in the Singapore Strait. Kevin and nine of his fellow sailors were killed. This tragedy has caused unimaginable pain for our family and for everyone that knew and loved Kevin, including all the sailors that survived this tragedy. We felt right away that this grief and pain must be directed in a positive way. Kevin would want us to remain united as a family and positive in our lives. I believe that we, as his family, have the responsibility to live fully in the face of our loss. Our goal is to honor and keep his memory alive and make a difference in the lives of the people around us by awarding scholarships to Gaithersburg High School students and to donate funds to the teachers and students at Goshen Elementary School.
