Wednesday Hero 09/10/2008

SSgt. Andy Pena
SSgt. Andy Pena

U.S. Air Force

Staff Sgt. Andy Pena performs in-flight calibrations on a HH-60 Pave Low while flying Sept. 3 over Ellington Field, Texas. He and members of the 55th Rescue Squadron deployed from Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz., to Ellington Field in response to Hurricane Gustav with less than 24 hours after notification. Sergeant Pena is an aerial gunner.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

Like you to my blog this is my first visit to yours, and may I say your blog is STUNNING and thank you for allowing me to visit.

I have taken some photos of aircraft at Elvington RAF Air Museum near YORK in the UK a few weeks ago and will be posting them soon.

Thanks for visiting my blog! You sound like one proud Mom and you have every right to be so. My Dad was in the Royal Canadian Air Force during WWII and I think he was a hero, too. There are many Canadian soldiers fighting and dying right now alongside your American men and boys and we are very proud of them! Have a heavenly week and please be sure to come back. :D
