SGT. Allan Bevington (Dec. 25 1983-Sept. 21 2006),of Beaver Falls, PA was my friend and the best soldier I ever had the pleasure of serving with. A Combat Engineer, assigned to the 40th Engineer Battalion, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, of the 1st Armored Division in Baumholder, Germany, he served multiple tours in Iraq. /n /nBevington was an inspiration to his fellow soldiers, and always stepped up to the plate when a mission came down the wire. /n /nI learned a great deal from Bevington in the short time that I knew him, and think of him everyday.
