I was sitting at work reading through the news and thought of you. So I thought I'd stop by and say hi and that, even though we lost touch after highschool, I still miss you. Such an amazing individual. I'll never forget the times we shared and how contageous your smile and laughter were. Love you bud.

Dear Andrew, its this day i have every letter you wrote when you were gone. Its still hard to believe you are no longer with us. You still hold a place in my heart that no one can taught me things that i will never forget...and you helped me grow into the woman I am today. I am no longer home , far away about to experience the greatest journey of my life and I have you to thank. You showed me that I could go do amazing things and anything is possible. You were an amazing man, and you will always be my hero..

I knew Andrew as a child. His Parents Scott and Tammy went to the Church of Christ in Oklahoma city.
They were very loving parents and Scott his father was a foreman of the apartment complex that we lived .
This is very sad news to find after all these years.

Well, we were neighbors to Bob and Jane until a few years ago. Andrew and Nicole were around the same age as my daughters Leslie and Jennifer. They sort of grew up together whenever the kids came to visit grandma and grandpa.
Many memories of Andrew and hearing him play his guitar. I still can't believe such a strong, active, ambitious young man is gone. Our hearts and prayers goes out to his family.

Dear Andrew,
You was our first grand-baby. I remember the first time i held you at the great falls airport,and later on you comeing through that same door as a sailor from Gitmo, and thinking back that first time i held you. Grandpa Bob remembers fishing with you when you were little and when you were grown. Most of all we are going to remember how soft spoken you always were. you are in our hearts until you are in our arms again.
love g-ma jane and g-pa bob

Dear Mrs. Charpentier,

My name is David R. Charpentier. I live in Cincinnati, OH (I was born and raised in St Paul, MN). Just today I saw your husband's obituary while reading one of the heroes lists. I wanted to express my condolences and my gratitude for your husband's service.

I am purchasing a paver brick in honor of your husband at a local Veteran's Park that is being dedicated this fall. We will not forget his service.

Dear Kathleen,
I just watched the dvd of andrew again. I am so thankful that andrew had you in his life. When i saw how he looked at you in your wedding video, it was as if he was looking at an angel. It touches me so much to see how much he loved you and how much you loved him. You were a true blessing to him. I would love to get to know you more. After all your a Charpentier now. My e-mail is

To the parents and family, I want you to know that you are not alone in the grief you are feeling. I know only too well what you are going through and what you will go through in the coming weeks and months ahead. You will have many questions as to why? You will have many things to get ready or go through and that should be done in time. Sometimes it just can’t be faced and that’s ok, for you will know when the time is right for you. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. Grief is an individual journey, that unfortunately like my own self you now have to travel. It doesn’t matter how they died but how they lived that we should focus on. We know that each one in our military joined to make a difference in their own lives and to serve their country. Please know that each one no matter what is an American Hero and to be honored always and forever. I ask that God give the comfort, strength and courage that you are going to need. When and if the time is right for you please contact me. You can cry, vent, or just talk as only another person who has been where you are can really know what you are going through. May God continue to hold your hand as He gives comfort to you today and for the rest of your life.

In memory of my son

To the Charpentier Family,

I know there are no words to say at this time, except how sorry that I am. I truly feel your loss and pain. Andrew shall never be forgotten.

For those missing in action;
for those who didn’t make it home.
I know you’re in God’s presence you are not alone.
For every neatly folded flag;
for every shattered family
I will do the only thing I know to dignify your memory.

I salute you, allow me the honor
to salute you with permission let me say
even though I hold no rank know that from my heart
my humble gratitude comes from the deepest part.

I salute you .

Every second you sacrificed
I hold you in my prayers.
So with one hand on my heart and the other in the air;

I salute you, allow me the honor
to salute you with permission let me say
even though I hold no rank know that from my heart
my humble gratitude comes from the deepest part.

I salute you.

Prayer for Peace

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

The Final Salute

“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.

This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to A1c Andrew Charpentier our Brother in Arms. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Andrew. And to Andrew it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country during the Global War on Terrorism while stationed at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba with the U.S. Air Force. Andrew, we bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of the 1,355 members of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion, I extend our sympathies and our condolences to Andrew’s family and loved ones.

To Andrew's family and friends: I extend my sadness and sorrow for your loss of such an incredible person. I am Nick Ford's grandmother. Many nights, while we lived in Fairfield, Andrew spent the night with us. The boys played their music and ate us out of house and home. Andrew was such a great musician, very talented, and was so personable with a smile on his face. He was a gentleman. I am shocked that he has been lost to us. Andrew got Nick through some difficult personal times, we are forever grateful. My deepest sympathy to all of you. Too soon you have lost him.

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Andrew. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Andrew was a truely amazing and gifted person.

To the Charpentier family,

We were all saddened to hear of Andrew's passing. We had just recently learned of his illness, and his hospital stay in Miami. Kaitlin, Kristen, and I will miss him--he certainly had a special place in our hearts. We will always have fond memories of Andrew, and how much he touched our lives. May God comfort you, and provide peace and understanding during this difficult time. Our prayers are with you always.
July 29, 2009
We were so sorry to hear of Andrew's illness and when he died, we just could not believe it. He was far too young and had far too much going for him. Words can't express.

No parent should ever have to see their child go before them. Ever.

Our thoughts are with you all.
July 29, 2009
I work with your Aunt Val. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this tender time in your life. God bless you with strength and courage as you continue on without your companion.
July 29, 2009
To the Family,
Words cannot express how sad hearted both Katie and I are for your loss. We both loved Andrew dearly. I got to visit with him before left for the Navy, and remember how excited he was to be going. Andrew will forever live in our hearts. Our prayers are with you all during this time of great loss.
