SGT Andre Booker USMC
August 1, 1981 – August 19, 2011
Army FSC 2nd Engineers Battalion
Dre loved running – he went from being a great high school track team member and would find himself eventually running in the Army 10-miler while stationed at WSMR, NM. (White Sands Missile Range).
He was a wonderful father, son, and brother. He was a loving husband, friend, and great battle buddy to his fellow Marines and Soldiers.
He joined the USMC in 2001 after graduating high school and later transferred into the USARMY in 2007.
He loved watching the New England Patriots, Boston Celtics, and the Red Sox play, but his favorite team to watch was the University of Alabama’s Crimson Tide Football team, where he had hopes to take me (his wife) to see a game.
His hobbies included music, running, and before his passing, he started learning and enjoying woodburning.
