Decorated Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher was acquitted of several alleged war crimes on July 2. Gallagher was accused of seven criminal charges in total, including the premeditated murder of a teenage ISIS detainee, and was put under court-martial in September 2018. After tireless efforts by Eddie Gallagher’s wife, family, friends, and supporters, a jury of soldiers found him not guilty of all the major charges. It’s obviously a celebratory time for Gallagher’s family, especially for his biggest champion, Andrea Gallagher. Andrea stood by her husband through thick and thin, making this a bigger victory for her. To celebrate the Gallagher family’s triumph, here’s Andrea Gallagher’s wiki.

Andrea and Eddie Married in 2007
Though they attended different schools, Eddie and Andrea ran in the same circles and met each other when they were around 16 to 17 years old. They became parents when they were young and spent some time apart for a while, possibly when Eddie was deployed. But as Andrea recalled on social media, they reunited in 2006.

A year later, they married on May 27, 2007. They commemorated 11 years of their marriage in 2018 with a romantic photoshoot at Santa Rosa Beach, a few months before Eddie would be placed under court-martial.
Eddie and Andrea Have Three Children
The couple are parents to three children: Treven (born 2000), Ava Grace (born 2004), and Ryan Edward Gallagher (born June 2009).
Eddie was arrested on September 11, 2018 at a traumatic brain injury treatment center at Camp Pendleton in San Diego County where he was seeking treatment for injuries incurred during combat duty. Friends said his court-martial trial was particularly hard on the children, but loved ones came to their aid.
Andrea was at the helm of the #FreeEddie campaign and held fundraisers with the help of friends. Eddie’s trial began in June and on July 2, a court-martial jury acquitted him of premeditated murder, attempted murder, obstruction of justice, and other offenses. He was found guilty of only one lesser offense—posing for a photo with the young ISIS fighter.

I’d say today is the single greatest day of my life. My father is finally free from our corrupt military’s officials. This is only the beginning though, our family hopes to reform and bring justice into the lives of other service members who’ve been wrongly convicted and accused by our government.
