Master Sgt. Andrew 'Andy' Christian Marckesano, RIP

RIP Brother, Vaya con Dios
My deepest condolences to the family

I did not know Andy, but I found out this morning he was just assigned to the same unit, here in NOVA, where a friend is currently assigned. Our paths may have been destined to cross.

Army's 'Captain America' dies by suicide after nearly a dozen combat tours

Master Sgt. Andrew 'Andy' Christian Marckesano served 6 full tours in Afghanistan with the 82nd Airborne and the Ranger regiment
The enemy could never break him, but what this decorated Green Beret eventually found was that his enemy was within. Friends who served with him in the military say he was the real “Captain America.”

Master Sgt. Andrew Christian Marckesano served six full tours in Afghanistan with the 82nd Airborne and the Ranger regiment and a half dozen more combat tours overseas. He rose to become a decorated Green Beret and a Silver Star recipient. He had just moved to Washington, D.C., to start a coveted job at the Pentagon. Two days after the Fourth of July on Monday night, after having dinner with his former battalion leader, Marckesano returned home from dinner in Old Town, Alexandria, and died by suicide in front of his wife. He had three small children and was still on active duty.

Saw that last night, so sad, the demons we live with...or can’t any longer. May he Rest In Peace and his family find solace in their grief. Prayers out.

Valhalla is filling at an unacceptable rate.
