Arizona Stories

Andrew Kirkland, Tucson

(Nominated by Kathy Kirkland)
Centennial Hall, University of Arizona
July 8, 2011

Andrew served in the United States Air Force for over 21 years.  He made sure that the men who flew their missions did so safely on jet engines that worked properly.  He briefly served in Desert Storm.  Now he remembers his late father (Detroit Police Department) and prays for the safety of his daughter, Kathy (South Carolina Police Department).  He was one of the first to stand up and say “I’ll go” after 911.  He would be honored to be given this opportunity.
