Hurlburt Field Airmen came together March 28 to help fight cancer by kicking-off a week-long bone marrow drive.

The base-wide drive, initiated by the 1st Special Operations Communications Squadron Tactical Communications Flight, helps support their colleague, Senior Master Sgt. Andy Turnbull, Tactical Communications Flight superintendent, who was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia July 19, 2010.

"I saw him a couple of times during his chemotherapy. Even though he was sick he was smiling, he was positive," said Senior Airman Eguzki Fernandez, a 1st SOCS tactical missions planner. "When you have that spirit, it inspires you to find a solution. If this program is going to help, I think everybody should volunteer."
