On January 20, 2007, the orthopaedic community lost one of its own in support of the Global War on Terrorism when Dr. Brian D. Allgood was killed in action at the young age of forty-six years. Brian was serving as the top physician in Iraq when his helicopter was shot down by insurgents. The son of an Army colonel, Brian traveled throughout his earlier years, eventually graduating from high school in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in 1978. After high school, Brian was selected to attend the United States Military Academy at West Point, where he graduated in 1982. He continued his education at the University of Oklahoma, receiving a medical degree in 1986. After completing his internship in general surgery in 1987 at Brooke Army Medical Center, Brian had the rare opportunity to serve as the general medical officer for the Army's elite Third Ranger Battalion in Fort Benning, Georgia. During his assignment to Fort Benning, he participated in a combat airborne operation in 1989 during the United States invasion of Panama during Operation Just Cause and earned the Army's Combat Medical Badge and Combat Parachutist Badge.
