The Allen Soldier-Centered Medical Home is named after Staff Sgt. Charles D. Allen, a medic assigned to 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division at Fort Lewis, Wash. He died from wounds sustained while conducting combat operations in Baghdad, Iraq on January 4, 2007.
Staff Sgt. Allen volunteered to replace a line medic on a patrol that day. As the patrol was returning to base, Staff Sgt. Allen was providing security from the rear hatch of his Stryker vehicle when he was killed by sniper fire.
Staff Sgt. Allen was the only combat medic killed in action with the 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division; he was posthumously promoted to staff sergeant, awarded the Bronze Star, Purple Heart, Meritorious Service Medal and Iraqi Campaign Medal.
While deployed on his second tour to Iraq in the latter part of 2006, Staff Sgt. Allen demonstrated great initiative as he excelled in various positions of increased responsibility. In Tai A'far, he made several improvements to his company's evacuation system, ensuring urgent medical care and evacuation was delivered on the battlefield. Exceeding the standard and expectations of his superiors, Staff Sgt. Allen was moved to Mosul and promoted to the role of platoon sergeant.
Charles was a dedicated father, husband, and friend. Medics who served with him at each assignment echoed the same remarks about his dedication to combat medicine, his love of Soldiering, his compassion toward his fellow teammates and his commitment to duty. There was never a doubt his purpose in life was to serve the country he loved for the family he cherished.
On October 8, 2019, a formal memorialization ceremony was held at the medical home dedicating it in honor of Staff Sgt. Allen with Allen’s family and close friends in attendance.
