Comrades are gone, but never forgotten
U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. (Ret.)

Bridger also ran the first lap of the 24-hour Prisoner of War/Missing in Action run and was the guest speaker for the POW/MIA closing ceremony. He was held captive with 500 other service members from 1967 until their release in 1973. Today, he travels around the world speaking to Airmen about his experiences.
