A Fund for Hunter & Ethan Harvell

Honoring Staff Sergeant Andrew W. Harvell and the 31 heroes that paid the ultimate sacrifice August 6, 2011 to protect our freedom.  The Harvell Fund is a custodial savings account for the two children of USAF SSGT Andrew W. Harvell - Hunter & Ethan.




The Harvell Fund is a fund set up for Hunter & Ethan Harvell, Andy's two children.  It is not a non-profit organization.  When Hunter and Ethan reach the age of 18, the custodial savings account will be given to them. We hope this account can help them with the uncovered costs of a college or post-graduate education, like food, travel, etc.

The account is managed by myself, Christopher Jones. The Harvell Fund is run by myself, Doug Matthews, and our wives. We contribute everything we receive from donations to the fund for Hunter and Ethan. We will try to fulfill orders as they are received; unfortunately, we cannot maintain a full-time operation and usually disconnect sales outside of the Fall time frame.  

We cannot say how thankful we are for the tremendous support we have received from so many different communities. Please reach out to us if you have any questions. 






Andy was killed on the night of August 6, 2011 as part of an elite special operations team executing a helicopter assault into the Tangi Valley, Wardak Province, Afghanistan. While approaching the target, their CH-47 helicopter was shot down, killing everyone on board. In 2006, Andy was assigned to the 21st Special Tactics Squadron, where he completed 4 deployments in support of Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom. In 2009, he tried out for and was selected to the 24th Special Tactics Squadron, the pinnacle of Air Force Special Operations team.  It was his second deployment with his new unit that Andy was bound for an enemy target and was shot down with his brothers in arms.  Andy's military awards include the Bronze Star with one Oak Leaf Cluster, the Purple Heart, the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, the Air Medal, the Joint Service Commendation Medal, the Joint Service Achievement Medal, and the Air Force Combat Action Medal. 

In 2007, Andy met Krista Klonk and  married two years later. Andy was the father of two boys, three year old Hunter, and five-month old Ethan, who were the pride of his life. Andy was a true patriot, a man who loved his wife dearly, a man who strived to be the best father to his sons that he could be, and a man that could make a crowd laugh at anytime and constantly did.  Andy perished as a warrior, taking the fight to our nation's enemies.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
