Twins Follow Family Footsteps, Enlist

Service to country runs deep in the Alliman family - four generations deep to be exact.

Proud to carry on the tradition, twins, Aaron and Andrew Alliman enlisted as Tank Mechanics (91A) January 27.

Great grandfather, Edward John Alliman fought in World War I; grandfather, Dale Edward, served in Korea; and their father, Charles Edward Alliman, fought in Iraq.

"We were going through the motions of typical education venues, but we both had a calling," the twins said. "We wanted to get an education, experience, serve, and keep with the family tradition. The Army offered us all of this."

Memorial Center Recruiter Staff Sgt. Casey DuFour, saw potential in 20-year-old Aaron and Andrew. Both graduated from alternative high school Guthrie Job Corp with certification in security training,  completing courses in basic hand to hand retention combat, secure and control of a suspect, basic law enforcement education, handcuffing certification, finger printing certification, basic unarmed combat, and Oklahoma state law.

"We don't understand why more Americans aren't taking advantage of these great opportunities our family has taken advantage of for over 80 years," they said.
