SYRACUSE-- New York Air National Guard Col. Tim Lunderman, commander of the 222nd Command and Control Squadron, poses with Rick and Lori Schneider after receiving "Real Heroes" awards from the American Red Cross. The three worked together to aid an elderly woman suffering a medical emergency at Hancock Airport on July 10. Only after the emergency was over did they realize they’d met at the funeral of the Schneider’s son, Marine Cpl. Kyle R. Schneider two days earlier. Cpl. Schneider was killed in Action on June 30, 2011.
