In Memoriam


Andrew Meari
 

Andrew Meari

PFC Andrew Meari, 21, of Plainfield, IL died while supporting Operation Enduring Freedom. He was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 502nd Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), Fort Campbell, Ky.

Meari's family says he was finishing a patrol when someone on a motorcycle drove up and set off a bomb. The army told them that Meari and another soldier shielded the platoon from the blast. Both gave their lives.
