My thoughts and prayers go to the family and friends of 30-year-old Sgt. 1st Class Andrew T. Weathers of DeRidder,Louisiana who died Sept. 30 at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany. He died from wounds he sustained when the enemy attacked his unit with small arms fire Sept. 28 in Helmand Province, Afghanistan.
Sgt. Weathers was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) Eglin Air force Base,Florida.
I know that Americans share the grief his family and friends are enduring at the loss of this soldier. Hopefully the family and his friends will comforted knowing that Americans share their loss.
