A 2003 graduate of the United States Military Academy, 1LT Derek S. Hines, 25, died on September 1, 2005, in Baylough, Afghanistan. His unit was conducting security operations and came under attack by enemy forces using small arms fire. Even after he had been fatally shot, 1st Lieutenant Hines continued to fire at the insurgents. Derek showed that same fortitude in everything he did.
Shortly after Derek's death, the Hines family started the The 1st Lieutenant Derek Hines Soldiers Assistance Fund to carry on Derek's legacy. The mission of The 1st Lieutenant Derek Hines Soldiers Assistance Fund is to provide financial assistance for Massachusetts’ soldiers, and their families, who have incurred serious, career ending, and life altering injuries while on active duty.
