Sgt Evander Earl "Andy" Andrews
Birth: Jan. 5, 1965
Solon
Somerset County
Maine, USA
Death: Oct. 10, 2001, Qatar

Air Force Master Sgt Andrews was assigned to the 366th Civil Engineer Squadron at Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho. Andrews was killed in a forklift accident while building an airstrip. He was the first reported American soldier to die during Operation Enduring Freedom. Andy was a quiet country boy who left the farm to join the Air Force after graduating from high school. He became close to his father who also worked as a mechanic on trucks and other big equipment. Together, they fixed engines and rode motorcycles. Andy's commander learned to recognize him by the soles of his boots and the back of his head, as he usually could be found working on heavy equipment instead of sitting in an office. During the funeral service, his wife Judy and four young children sat in the front row of the chapel. His son Ethan nodded in agreement when family pastor Thomas Westall described Andrews as a hero. "Yep, he is a hero," the boy said in a small voice.
