Don't Cry for Me

Airman;Sep2004, Vol. 48 Issue 9, p26
The article presents information on the burn victim airman Brandon Lee. He used to stand in front of a mirror, cover up the side of his face that was scarred the worst and try to imagine what he'd look like if he'd never been burned. These were natural reactions for a young child trying to fit in with his peers. But there was no blending in for Brandon. He suffered disfiguring scars in a gasoline fire at age 4. He's moved on from his injuries. As an airman first class, he is thriving as an aircraft armament systems specialist with the 388th Equipment Maintenance Squadron at Hill Air Force Base, Utah. He works on fighter aircraft weapons release systems, such as rocket launchers and 20mm cannons on the multimillion dollar F-16 Fighting Falcon.
