On June 19, 2022, United States Army Captain Andrew K. Allman passed away due to gastric adenocarcinoma, cancer attributed to his exposure to burn pits while serving in the United States Army.

Allman was born and raised in Northern Virginia where he had a true passion for history and lacrosse. Allman attended The Citadel, The Military College of the South where he majored in English. After receiving his degree in 2007, Allman decided to enlist in the United States Army in June of the same year.
