Andrew F Chris

From Steel Skin site:

"Andrew was the kind of guy everyone loved to be around. He had a great sense of humor. He was sincere; always willing to lend a hand wherever he was needed. An avid reader; he had a passion for history, especially military history. Andrew loved the outdoors. One of our favorite memories is seeing him gear up for his daily hikes. He would throw on his pack, grab his canteen and spend his lunch break hiking through the hills behind our shop. When he left to join the army, although we were sad to see him go, we could not have been more proud."

AP News

Andrew Chris, of Florence, Ala., followed a long line of relatives into the military: his grandfathers, his uncle and his brother Derek. Chris was killed along with another Army Ranger on June 25 when a vehicle packed with explosives detonated in Baghdad.
