Capt. Michael Gruber

Capt. Michael Gruber, the 35th Communications Squadron director of operations, set out to pay respect to America’s prisoners of war and missing in action, as well as stand in solidarity with his father who was recently diagnosed with lung cancer, by running 85 miles for 24 hours straight, Sept. 18, 2015, at Misawa Air Base, Japan. As an avid runner, he has taken part in four 100-mile and one 100-km remembrance runs, collecting a memorabilia belt buckle to commemorate each marathon.
