NEW MAJ James W. Dennehy Esq. Scholarship ($500)

MAJ Dennehy

This $500 scholarship is started in memory of a great patriot, and multi-talented American.

Maj. James W. Dennehy, Esquire, age 47, died Wednesday, August 24, 2011, from natural causes. He was on active duty while attending advanced military legal education at the Judge Advocate General's Legal Center in Charlottesville, Va.

Maj. Dennehy first entered service for his country in 1992 with the United States Coast Guard. He then served as a Milford police officer while completing his degree in Criminal Justice from St. Anselm's College. Following the September 11, 2001, attack on America, he was commissioned as an officer in the United States Army Reserves.

After graduating from New England School of Law with distinction, he served as a an assistant United States attorney with the United States Attorney's Office in Concord, and thereafter as a select member of the Department of Homeland Security in the state of New York. Maj. Dennehy returned to his native New Hampshire and opened a private practice law firm serving Nashua, Manchester and Concord.

In 2009, Maj. Dennehy joined the New Hampshire Army National Guard as a JAG officer. Then in 2010, he deployed with New Hampshire's 197th Fires Brigade in support of Operation New Dawn. Maj. Dennehy held the position of Brigade Judge Advocate General. He served as chief legal advisor for the brigade, consisting of more than 2,600 soldiers who supported a theater security forces mission throughout Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan. Unfortunately, Maj. Dennehy suffered deep vein thrombosis leading to his death, which was likely caused by his flight home from Kuwait.

Maj. Dennehy's awards and decorations include the Bronze Star, Meritorious Service Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Armed Forces Reserve Medal with M Device, and the Army Reserve Components Achievement Medal.

He is survived by his loving wife of 24 years, Lisa Dennehy, Esquire; twelve children, Amanda J. Vicinanzo and her husband Joseph Vicinanzo, Spc. Mathew J., Hannah D., Tierney R., Mary T., Colleen G., Katherine M., Michael M., Joseph F., Brighid C., Abigail A., and Madeleine C. Dennehy; his father, Donald J. Dennehy; his mother, Jacquelyn VanGelder; one sister, Joan Gowell and her husband Lawrence; two brothers, John W. Dennehy, Esquire and his wife Melinda, and Donald H. Dennehy.
