Taylor Force was a selfless army veteran whose life was cut short by a Palestinian terrorist as Force was visiting Israel.

Force was a West Point graduate from Texas who grew up envisioning a life of service to his country.

He was known amongst family and friends as a young man who loved people and gave of himself to causes he believed in.

Having completed his army career, he had enrolled at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee to study for an MBA. Force had been excited about his trip to Israel where he wanted to learn about the Jewish state’s innovation in the start-up field.
