West Point Graduate Killed Fighting In Ukraine
Andrew Webber is a West Point graduate.
"His smile, humor, and caringness will be missed. He leaves behind a caring wife and daughters," Father, Son, Brother, Friend. Andrew brought a lot of knowledge to the table in planning and operations. As well as a cool head on the actual operations," O'Leary said about Webber.
Webber graduated from the United States Military Academy in 2005. He's survived by his two young girls and wife, according to GoFundMe.
"He was a veteran education mentor, a relentless patriot and a defender of freedom who valued justice and liberty for others just as much as his own life. He was passionate about domestic urban trauma care and had submitted a patent for low-cost trauma kits," the GoFundMe states.
Webber went to Ukraine with the intent of providing some combat trauma training. He was supporting Ukraine's independence as a volunteer.
Money raised from GoFundMe will help his family navigate these challenging times.
