I can’t think of anyone more deserving than Mr. Scanning! He has done so much for the recovery of those brave servicemen who gave their lives and for the families who suffered their loss. As a family member of one such veteran lost and found (Ora H. Sharninghouse, Jr.) I can’t tell you how much it meant to all of us to have him recovered and sent home. It was a incredible experience!
I sincerely hope Pat wins as he has earned it many times over.
