  2. US Army Sergeant Andrew Tobin also leaves his mother, Lee Ann Smith; his brother, Nicholas, and a baby nephew.

    I've known Andrew since he was a young boy. He was a beautiful child and a very brave young man. His death breaks our hearts.

    Thank you for posting this site so that we can all share our thoughts.

    We hold all of our soldiers in our hearts - those fallen and those with us - forever.

  3. Andrew was born and raised in the Los Angeles area. He only went to college in Jacksonville, Illinois. He has a mother, a brother, and a nephew. I'm so very upset that no one has checked with me or his wife to get the facts correct. I am his mother.
    Thank You Robyn for posting! I love you and I miss my son so very much.
