Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation

Our mission is to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to the children of military personnel killed in the line of duty.

In 1989, five days before Christmas, Sergeant William Delaney Gibbs from the 7th Infantry Division was killed in action during Operation Just Cause in Panama, leaving behind a young wife and an unborn daughter. Our Founder and President, David Kim, served with Sergeant Gibbs and was inspired by his sacrifice to establish Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation as a way to help Sgt. Gibb’s daughter and the thousands of children like her.

Mission: The mission of Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation is to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty. Our vision is that every such child can have a college education.

Today we honor the brave soldiers who stormed the beaches of Normandy 75 years ago. We will never forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice. #DDay75thAnniversary
