I am wearing SGT. Andersons Bracelet as I write this along with another MIA (PFC. James Michael Ray) they only come off is to bath or during surgery. Would like to let his family know that their Airman is remembered every day by me and every evening on a facebook group made up of Vets and their supporters. The group is called standdown and we have " formation every night at 1900 where we remember our Vets who have made the Ultimate sacrifice.
