We have given back to The Ben Hines Memorial Foundation, which strives to support those who share Staff Sergeant Benjamin Hines’ passions of Family, Patriotism, Faith, and Education. Thank you to Amanda Brown of C5BDI for suggesting this cause.
To provide more information about this foundation, Staff Sergeant Benjamin S. Hines, 31, originally from York, Pennsylvania, was KIA on April 8th, 2019 while conducting combat operations in Parwan Province, Afghanistan in support of Operation Freedom’s Sentinel. Ben had always wanted to become a Marine and lived his life and laid down his life for God, Family, and Country. He enlisted in the Marine Corps in October 2006 and served honorably for 13 years. Ben was assigned to Echo Company, 2nd Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment, 4th Marine Division in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and served as a Rifleman, Fire Team Leader, and Infantry Squad Leader. His deployments included Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Freedom Sentinel, Afghanistan. His distinguished career ended in the line of duty after his vehicle was struck by a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device on April 8th, 2019.
In addition to being a Marine reservist, Ben was also a student and worked full-time as a Cyber Security Analyst for Jacobs. Furthermore, Ben was a fan of many things including Star Wars, Black Rifle Coffee, Juventus & all Pittsburgh sports teams. Ben cherished his time with his fiancee, family & friends, and those who met him were always greeted with his welcoming smile, uncompromising respect, and infectious sense of humor. He was always a selfless individual who put the needs of others before his own. The Ben Hines Memorial Foundation strives to do just that and to support those who share Ben’s passions of Family, Patriotism, Faith, and Education. Help them keep Ben’s legacy alive… “Greater love has no one than this: that a man lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13
