On July 10th, 2017...

Staff Sergeant William “Billy” Kundrat was conducting a training operation as part of Marine Special Operations Team (MSOT) 8231.  Their mission that day was to conduct an airlift from Cherry Point, NC to Arizona where they would conduct pre-deployment training.  While en route the KC-130 they were flying in broke apart in mid-air and crashed in Leflore County Mississippi.

 
 Billy Kundrat’s loss hit Maryland hard, as he was a well respected member of the community.  He graduated from Gov. Thomas Johnson High School in 2002 and joined the Marine Corps in 2002.  In 1998, SSgt Kundrat met Ashley Cregger from Frederick, MD, and they were married on September 8th, 2004.

 This July, Brothers In Arms Foundation will conduct an event to honor Billy.  Fellow MSOT members, family, and friends of Billy will be participating in a 900 mile hike called the Marine Raider Memorial March.  This march will begin at the crash site in Mississippi, and will finish at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.  This 900 mile ruck will take just under two weeks to complete and will signify bringing their brothers home to rest.

 In order to conduct this 900 mile ruck march in honor of Billy, we need support from his friends, family and the Maryland community.  We need to raise $25,700 by June 10th.  The funds donated to Brothers In Arms Foundation are 100% tax-deductible. Brothers In Arms Foundation is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization that directly supports the Marine Special Operations Community.  The funds will be used for flights, lodging, transportation, rental cars, meals and medical supplies.  The Marine Raider Memorial March is a grueling event with a large logistical train, and we can’t do this without your support!
