Bad News for Bears, Good News for Area Vet

Bad news for the Bears, that 29-17 loss to the Colts, but the Super Bowl was good news for one local veteran.

From Illinois Government News Network:

[On February 1, 2007], Lt. Governor Pat Quinn presented Homefront Hero Awards to Brad Buell of Libertyville and American Airlines for donating two tickets and first-class airfare for wounded hero Army SGT Bryan Anderson of Rolling Meadows to attend Sunday’s Super Bowl in Miami. Quinn was joined by Steve McMichael of the legendary ’85 Super Bowl Chicago Bears.

On October 23, 2005, the then 24-year old Army Spc. Bryan Anderson, was wounded by a roadside bomb while riding in his Humvee in Baghdad, Iraq. That day, Anderson became the fourth American servicemember to lose three limbs in the Iraq war. Anderson also suffered abdominal injuries and a collapsed lung. Recently promoted to Sergeant, Anderson has made an amazing recovery and will soon walk on artificial legs.

Anderson appears in a stunning January 2007 Esquire cover story. Well worth the read. Here's hoping his trip was a good one, no matter the Bears loss. Kudos to American Airlines and to Brad Buell for taking care of one local vet!
