"Please meet Landon.. his dad Marine LCPL Andrew Carpenter made the ultimate sacrifice while serving on his second deployment with the 3/8 in Afghanistan earlier this year.. a month before his son was born. In the picture, to the right, Andrew Paul Carpenter's dog tags dangle from his dusty boots. A small Bible, bookmarked with his wedding announcement, rests on the floor beside them."
Thank you Paul for sending this in. Paul took the time to contact Crissie Carpenter (widow and mother) to run this post. Words on a web site will never do justice, thank you to the Carpenter family and fallen Andrew Carpenter.

    All I can Say is your dad gave his life for a reason in which he stood for. You and yor mom are not alone I feel perhaps you have a guardian angel who watches over the both of you. I do however kind of understand your moms pain although I have never lost a husband to this stupid thing we call war. I have lost a brother. Not the same war as you lost your dad but a war as you grow older you will read about in your history books. It was called viet nam. And unlike your dad he had never fallen in love, or had a son to carry on his name. he was 19 when he was killed. So carry your dads name prowdly and know that he never wanted to leave you or your mother. God just needed a special Angel so he took your dad.
