Sir,
My name is MSgt. Steve Salander.  I am the Operations Superintendent
for the 169th Air Support Operations Squadron (ASOS) in Peoria IL.  SSG.
Jacob L. Frazier was a member of my unit.  We are an Air National Guard unit
that specializes in Tactical Air Control.  You may know us by such acronyms
as TACP, GFAC, ETAC, ALO, BALO, FAC, TAC, etc.  Jake was killed in Operation
Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.  He was the only Air Force member on a U.S.
Special Forces team that was ambushed north of the town of Gereshk in the
Helmund Province in Afghanistan.  He was a 24 year old kid who loved his job
and the military, but most of all, he was a great friend and patriot.  He
received the Purple Heart and Bronze Star with Valor posthumously.  He is
survivied by his mother and father and four siblings, two sisters and twin
brothers.  Thanks for your time.

MSgt. Steven R. Salander
Operations Superintendent
