Sgt. 1st Class Andrew T. Weathers, a Green Beret and Special Forces medical sergeant, died Tuesday at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, Germany, from wounds sustained in combat, the Defense Department reported.

Weathers, 30, of Cresview, Florida, was wounded by small arms fire when the enemy attacked his unit Sunday, in Helmand Province, Afghanistan.

He was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne), Eglin Air Force Base, Florida.

“From the beginning of his time with 7th Group, Sgt. Weathers was the consummate teammate,” said Col. Robert Kirila, deputy commander for 7th SFG (A), in a news release.
“Weathers was critical to the well being of his team and those he mentored. The group mourns the loss of such a great leader and we will support his family in every way possible.”
Weathers joined the Army in January 2003. He attended individual training at Fort Eustis, Virginia, and graduated as a CH-47 Chinook helicopter repairer. He was stationed at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, and assigned to the 101st Combat Aviation Brigade. Weathers deployed twice with the 101st CAB, first to Iraq in 2005 as a crew chief and to Afghanistan in 2008 as a Flight Engineer.

Weathers volunteered for Special Forces in 2010. He was assigned to the 4th Battalion of the 7th SFG (A) in 2012 and then to the group’s 2nd Battalion in 2014.

Weathers’ awards and decorations include the Air Medal with Oak Leaf Cluster, the Army Commendation Medal with Oak Leaf Cluster, the Army Achievement Medal with three Oak Leaf Clusters, the Joint Meritorious Unit Award, the Army Good Conduct Medal with two Oak Leaf Clusters, the National Defense Service Medal, the Afghanistan Campaign Medal with Campaign Star, the Iraq Campaign Medal with Campaign Star, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, the Korean Defense Service Medal, the Noncommissioned Officer Professional Development Ribbon with Oak Leaf Cluster, the Army Service Ribbon, the Overseas Service Ribbon with two Oak Leaf Clusters and the NATO Medal.

Weathers was also the recipient of the Special Forces Tab, the Combat Infantryman Badge, the Aviation Badge and the Parachutist Badge.

He is survived by his parents, Michael and Jere Weathers of Pollock, Louisiana, and a brother, Dusten and sister, Carrie.
