Gustavo Andy Anderson
Branch: Air Force
War or Conflict: WWII
Years of Service: 3
Gustavo served right after high school graduation. He was involved in ROTC and very patriotic. He was at Fort Bliss, Texas for basic training and went into the Army Air Corp when he finished. He went through the training for the B-17 as a ball turret gunner. He didn't go overseas due to a medical condition, but served stateside in many capacities. He was a typist and bi-lingual in Spanish and English and used both skills in his service. He was awarded the American Theater Campaign Ribbon, Good Conduct Medal, and the Victory Ribbon. He was always very proud to have served his country and after his discharge, worked for the Veterans Administration for three more years. He always hoped to go back to see the WWII memorial in Washington DC but was unable to for health reasons. He passed away this year in Feb 2016.
