"MSGT Andrews & Family,

I only knew of you in passing, but I could tell by the people around you that you were the life of the party. We deployed together in September of 2001 from MT Home AFB. I remember the day of your passing very vividly. I worked for the Fire Department and your accident happened about 20 yards away from me. We were by your side working on you within a few minutes. I want your family to know that we did everything we could possibly do to bring you back, but it was already too late. I think about you and your family often as this day has been burned into my memory for the rest of my life. You were and always will be a true hero in my eyes Andy. Shortly after your passing, tent city was renamed “Camp Andy” in your memory. God bless you and your family!"
SSgt Ben Cameron (Retired) USAF

"My son was in the Air Force and near the area where your son was killed. My son had gone there shortly before Evander's death. I recently wrote this (below) in an email to my son who retired after 22 yrs in the AF. I can not find the town of Solon in my Atlas. I suppose it is one of many small communities in our country. He told me of this website. I grieved very much for you after learning it was your son because I thought of the grief and worry I had for my Master Sgt. son when hearing of the death of initially an unidentified airman. I hope this brings you some comfort. I will say a prayer for you and your son.

"I was most worried about you when you had just arrived overseas and I heard an Air Force Sgt. was killed. He was operating a tow truck as I recall. I thought it might not be you because I was not aware that you drove a tow truck. But I worried very much and when the person was identified, I had deep sorrow for the family. I think I told you about that and you said you had heard of the accident. Dad""

"I'll always remember that day when I arrived at Mountain Home AFB... Msgt Whistler said "We can't call you Andy, 'cause that's 'Andy' over there! We'll just call you Sinclair." I served with Andy for just less than 4 years. He always had a get it done attitude, and a great sense of humor. I learned alot from him about equipment and more importantly being a respected man who valued his family and his religion. Probably my favorite memory is seeing Andy leaving the base one day on his motorcycle with Ethan sitting behind him... asleep. Ethan loved to ride with him. Andy said "He's just so comfortable back there, he just falls asleep." It was an honor to know him, and I will never forget him!"

"To "Andy's" Family;
I recently returned from my third tour in Operations Iraqi/Enduring Freedom. I was there when Andy was taken from us. And I found myself there again this past fall. On all three tours, Andy has, and will continue to touch our lives. His memorial serves as a reminder of why we serve. In the "DirtBoyz" shop, there is a large monochromatic poster of Andy still hanging as we speak. His kind smile stares back at all of us...reassuring us that we are doing what is right by intervening in this part of the world and making a better place for the Iraqi/Afgani people. His loss was not in vain. He was a true CE warrior. I can only pray that when I am called home, that it can be in such an honorable way. Take heart, stand tall and be proud. "Once a DirtBoy...always a DirtBoy"."

"Dear Evander E. Andrews

I realize you do not know me personally, but I am with you spiritually. You are a true hero in the eyes of all Americans. I want you to know that all your efforts were not in vain. I appreciate the ultimate sacrifice you paid so that all of us can live in a free and safe society.

The ultimate sacrifice in life is to take action and protect those whom you love. You were there in Iraq because you love this great country and your fellow citizens and you choose to place yourself in harms way in order to protect the sovereignty of our country. In the eyes of God you have given the greatest gift of all for your friends and loveones; you gave your life. I just wanted you to know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers each and everyday. Thank you for giving me the greatest gift in life which is the gift of freedom.

To the family of Evander E. Andrews, please except my sincere condolences on the loss of your son. Your son has a special place in my heart, and in the hereafter with all the rest of the saints. If there is anything I can do please let me know.

Sincerely,

Carol Annino
