Remembering Army Sgt. 1st Class Andrew T. Weathers

flag, antiqueMy 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.

    Andrew was nothing less than incredible. He had a purpose in life, a goal a true dream; and that was to be an “All American Hero” . I knew Andrew very well, we were married for almost 10 years, he was at one point, my very best friend. I can tell you with one hundred precent confidence that dying for his country is how he wanted to go, and he did! Andrew lived his dream, although it was a short one. Andrew was the definition of a true soilder. He had no fear! I pray he is remembered forever, and his name is mentioned everywhere. I pray he is told in epic Army battle stories to young boys wanting to hear about a true American hero! Sgt. 1st Class Andrew T. Weathers was definitely a “bad ass” soilder and green beret!
    Incredibly grateful to have known,loved and shared years with this man!
    Jennifer
