Sky Soldiers Foundation, Inc.

Another Sky Soldier has left our earthly ranks. Thomas Evans Hummell passed away on October 2, 2023 with his wife Marlene Battelle Hummell at his side.


Tom was a special member of the Sky Soldiers Foundation leadership in that not only did he establish, with his generosity, a 21st Century Sky Soldiers and Family Members Scholarship endowment, but he joined the Foundation board to support its mission and was its Treasurer and member of the Scholarship Committee. Marlene also joined the board and is currently the Foundation’s Assistant Secretary and a member of its Scholarship Committee.
