Dorine Kenney lost her only child Jacob to the Iraq war. Eleven days after Jacob's death, on his 29th birthday, Dorine sent a care package to one of her son's friends still serving in Iraq. This single act spawned The Jacob's Light Foundation, an organization to honor her son and care for those still fighting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
