From Ranger Kopp’s Mother, Jill:
“Ben Kopp was everybody's best friend and a champion of the underdog in any situation. He was well known for his crooked grin, goofy sense of humor and loyalty to both his male and female friends. Like most Rangers, tenacity and perseverance came natural to him. He joined the army out of love and admiration for his great-grandfather who served in WWII as a member of the 34th Infantry Division Red Bulls and also to vindicate the events of
9/11/01. Ben proudly served as an Infantryman in the U.S. Army for love of God, country and family.”
Ranger Kopp was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star Medal for Valor, Purple Heart and the Meritorious Service Medal.
