The Mr. Andy Condon
Scholarship annual award
From Sergeant Jeff Condon- I wanted to establish an annual scholarship to honor my father. Andy Condon cut his teeth in the military by being assigned to the 1/7th Air Cav in Vietnam right out of OSUT, Ft Dix. He was the recipient of the Purple Heart medal and Combat Infantry Badge. It was important to establish this ongoing scholarship to aid as needed. For those who knew Andy, knew that he was a very giving person and always put others ahead of himself even up to the time of his death in 2021. This scholarship is a testament to the life he led.
