Retired Army Master Sergeant Mark Allen died Oct. 12 due to complications from a headshot wound he sustained in 2009 while searching for Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl in Afghanistan.
Allen was 46 years old. He leaves behind a wife and two children, according to an online funeral announcement.
Allen was shot in the head during the search mission for Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. Army sergeant who deserted his unit in Afghanistan in 2009.
Master Sergeant Mark Allen suffered traumatic brain injuries and was not able to talk or walk for the last 10 years of his life.
At his 2017 court-martial trial, Bergdahl admitted that he had deserted his post. At the time, Bowe’s unit was worried that he had been captured, so they set out to rescue him.
