I served with Ed when I was stationed in Pearl Harbor, HI. We became great friends. Ed was also my roommate for a while in a house shared by a few other friends that were made at NPMOC. I remember the day before he left to get stationed in the Pentagon. We went to the water park, and had a great time. He was a spectacular human being who cared for people like no one else I have ever come across. I am a teacher now and every year I share Ed's story and talk about the great person he was. I will never forget Ed and I will make sure every child I teach will never forget what happened on September 11th. I think about Ed's family every year on this day and I pray that they are comforted and blessed.

I am honored to have called you a friend. When we take the oath of service to our country, we know that there may be a time that we give the ultimate price. You were always willing to go the extra step and blaze the way with a smile and a helping hand. You are in my thoughts every day. I have only known a very few people that are of your equal. I hope that some day I may be thought of as one. Until we meet at the Fiddler's Green....

We may have had our differences, but I never wanted to see you taken away! Ed was a GREAT son and brother! I will always remember you and that silly little smile you always had. Enjoy heaven, soldier!

I avoided the news yesterday. Avoided TV. Avoided everything. Each year, my heart breaks all over again, and I suffer the same pain and grief as I did seven years ago when your aunt answered an email I sent to you that simply said, "Are you OK?" You were one of the most amazing people I have ever been blessed to know. I still have your letters from Hawaii and postcards from Guam. I still have the little gifts you sent me. I can still see your smile. The sunrise has never been more beautiful than the ones I shared with you out to sea. I love you now, as I did then. I miss you. I am so blessed to have known you. And I hope to see you again some day. All of my love... xx

I met Ed when he came to the USS Fletcher DD-992 for a 6 month deployment to the Persian Gulf with us. We worked together for 6 months and became friends. He was a good sailor. We will miss him.

With thoughts of the Earhart family, here in DC, on 11 Sept 2008.

There are not enough words in the English Language to describe how important Ed Earhart has been in my career and my life as a whole. He was one of the greatest men I have ever met in my lifetime. I met Ed while stationed with him at the Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Center in Pearl Harbor, HI. He was not only an outstanding sailor, he truly cared about those around him and those under his supervision. He mentored and trained some of the Navy's best Aerographer's Mates to this day. We took so much from his leadership and guidance in order to continue the tradition of not only leading sailors, but to truly impart a feeling of family upon them. In the navy there are times when the only family a sailor may have to turn to is their navy family. That is where the guidance and leadership that he showed his sailors made it's greatest impact. His impact on my life has been that he showed me how to be an effective leader and mentor and, in some cases, friend to my sailors. Through this leadership, I have made an impact on the lives of numerous sailors that I have either lead or served with. The First Class Petty Officers Association of what is now known as Naval Maritime Forecast Center Pearl Harbor, Salute you AG1 Edward Thomas Earhart, and your name and legacy will never be forgotten.

In Memory of a Great Man, Leader, Friend, and Shipmate,
My sincerest regards and prayers,
AG1(AW) Nathaniel R Harris

Even if I don't know Edward, or you Andrea, I will send you my deepest condolences. People will never really die, when there are caring and loving people, keeping the memory alive. I will pray for Edward, for you and your family. I hope you recovered from this tremendous loss and go on with living. That's what he would want. He is in a better place now. I love you, even if I don't know you, but love doesn't need any requirement. Rest in peace, Edward.

Ed was one of the most courteous,kind and fun-loving young men I ever met. The first time of saw Ed was in Morehead at the apartment of my nephew, Jeffrey Ritchie, and Ed helped me carry some supplies into the apartment. I will always remember the smile only he could have and the kindness in his eyes. The sound of his laughter would put you at ease, and I know in my heart that on that September morning he was using his time to help someone else. That was just the way he was, always thinking of others before himself. They say God takes the good ones first to protect them from the trials yet to come. When Ed was called home on September 11, God did take the best. I'll always remember and love you Ed, and someday we will laugh again together.

Ed was like a brother to me and I will always remember him as the great person that he was

I met Ed while he was stationed in Hawaii.  We met on the internet and then met by chance when he came into where I worked one day.  We both were from KY and had similar interest so we always had something to talk about.  When I missed home Ed would always make me feel better and we could always talk about home.  He always had a smile on his face and I'll never forget how kind he was to me.

Ed was the youngest of three children.  He was a happy baby and toddler.  He had blond hair, blue eyes and the friendliest smile you'd ever see.  As a child, Cookie Monster was his favorite. 

Ed was a great brother and friend.  He served his country with Honor as have others in his family.  Unfortunately, his life was taken 9/11/01 in Service to our Great Country.  Freedom ISN'T Free!  Please remember this with our Troops serving all over the World and esp. in Iraq.

I will ALWAYS Love and Miss my little brother, Ed.

Family of a Fallen Hero, AG-1 Edward Thomas Earhart stationed at the Pentagon for the U. S. Navy  NEVER FORGET 9/11/01!!
