Master Sgt. Anthony Yost ("Andy", to his family)
The family of Andy Yost would like to thank you for visiting our website. Though Andy has left this world his spirit, and our love for him, will live on forever.
On this site, in both pictures and in words, we can share our fond memories of Andy with family and friends. While most of the materials on this site were provided by our family we also plan to include stories written about Andy by his military friends, links to related news articles, etc.
Andy died a hero, proudly, in service to his country. But long before his death he was a larger-than-life hero to his family, here, in Michigan. Now the world knows what we always knew - that Andy was a person who stood up for what he believed in and who would always rise to meet any challenge if it meant doing the right thing.
Our challenge is simple: to help keep the memory of this beloved man and proud patriot alive in the hearts and minds of both his family and freedom-loving people everywhere; to that end we have created this website.
As we assemble the old photos and collect our memories for this site we feel as though Andy is watching. No matter what the endeavor, Andy always gave his personal best. We can only hope that this website does his memory justice. We promise, Andy, we'll do our best.
God bless your soul, Andy....you are greatly loved and sorely missed.

A Daughter's Prayer
Andy's daughter, Cheyenne, wrote the following prayer which has been placed on a plaque in Millington High School (where Andy graduated):
My dad is a hero who loved his country,
He lost the fight that took his life
I love you always & forever Daddy
