      Colonel Kennedy’s Air Force career spanned over 27 years.  The first six and a half years were spent as an Auditor in which he conducted internal audits covering various Air Force programs, systems, organizations and financial accounts.  He first performed those duties at Kelly Air Force Base, San Antonio, TX, and then at Andersen Air Force Base Guam.  

      In November 1979, Colonel Kennedy was selected to become a Special Agent with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations.  Upon graduation from the Air Force’s Special Investigations Academy in March 1980, he began a 21-year stint conducting, overseeing and directing major investigations.  Those included criminal cases, white collar crime, computer crimes, counter-intelligence investigations, double agent operations and anti-terrorism operations.  He was assigned to a number of bases during this time:  Norton Air Force Base, CA; two headquarter tours at Bolling Air Force Base, Washington, DC; two tours at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, OH; Travis Air Force Base, Fairfield, CA; and a NATO assignment in Naples, Italy.  His last post was as commander of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations Region 1, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, OH, with 400 people at 31 geographically separated locations across the continental United States.

      Colonel Kennedy’s military decorations include the Legion of Merit, Meritorious Service Medal (with four oak leaf clusters), and Air Force Commendation Medal (with one oak leaf cluster).  His professional military education includes Squadron Officers School, Air Command and Staff College and Air War College.  

      Colonel Kennedy retired from active duty in October 2000.  He and his wife then spent a year traveling the country in their motor home before settling down in Summerville, SC.
