Andrea Gallagher is known for the marital ties she has to Eddie Gallagher but there is more to her. Andrea Gallagher (nee Shively) was born on the 5th of April, 1980 in Indiana. She grew up in Fort Wayne with her two siblings and parents, Sharon and Larry. Northrop High School was where she had her high school education, while the university she attended is not known.

Andrea had always shared mutual friends with Edward Gallagher, and when they were teens, some of their friends introduced them to one another.

Eddie joined the Navy in 1999 and he was part of the military for 19 years. In this time, he became decorated for the work he had done during the eight oversea deployments he had embarked on; most of these deployments were to countries in the Middle East.

But awards for service wouldn’t be all he is known for; the man earned a reputation for himself due to how brutal he was in his dealings. Different investigation panels had been set up on his account to pass judgment for some of his more grievous offences. Despite the measures put in place to curb this aggression it only seemed to get worse and in 2018, on the date of the anniversary of the twin towers bombing, he was arrested for committing certain war crimes.

War is a dangerous affair and as the human species has evolved, we have found more sophisticated ways to fight our wars. This is why in 1949 after the greatest war that mankind had ever experienced, the Geneva conventions were created to curb how people treat others during wars. Failure to follow these conventions means that you will get charged with War Crimes. Eddie Gallagher’s trial was highly publicized and even the president, Trump intervened in the happenings on the case.

On the 2nd of July 2019, he was found guilty of one of the charges levelled against him, and he had already spent time in jail which made up for the duration of the sentence, his second punishment was a demotion.

Throughout the case, Andrea maintained that her husband was innocent and made sure the world knew his side of the story. She spearheaded the #FreeEddie campaign on Twitter, had her friends help her and solicited for crowdfunding to pay her husband’s legal fees.

Andrea Gallagher owns a business called Better Business Babe. Her company seeks to help other women make great entrepreneurial decisions by coaching them and offering consultation services.
