“She was the light and energy of her family, and she will be greatly missed, especially her beautiful smile.” –Obituary of 19-year-old Kelsey Sue Anderson
Many readers may never experience the heartbreak of losing a child. I can’t imagine the grief that families go through when dealing with the tragedy of a child dying so young. To add to the heartache, the family of Airman 1st Class Kelsey Sue Anderson of Idaho is getting the runaround from the United States Air Force (USAF) and very little assistance from their United States Senator, Jim Risch.
Airman Anderson was a member of the USAF and was assigned duties with Security Forces on the beautiful island of Guam. She had been there about five months before her death on June 9, 2011.
The USAF says that Airman Anderson was “the apparent victim of a self-inflicted gunshot wound from her own service weapon” according to a story from the Associated Press.
