Army Spc. Ethan Biggers of Beavercreek, was a 2003 Beavercreek High School graduate along with his twin brother, Matt. After graduating the Biggers twins followed family tradition and joined the armed forces. Their grandfather's destroyer, the ‘Newcomb,' was severely damaged by five Kamikazes at Okinawa during World War II and their father served as a C-130 pilot in Vietnam and later in KC-135s. Ethan was training in Fort Campbell and would return to Beavercreek on weekends. He began dating a high school friend, Britni. Matt finished his first tour in Iraq in February 2005. The Biggers family then enjoyed a peaceful period of seven months in which neither brother was stationed in a combat zone. In September 2005, Ethan received orders to deploy. Only two days after arriving in Yusifayah, Ethan found out Britni was pregnant. Both parties were very excited, and a couple months later, they discovered it was a boy. Ethan's company had been taking heavy hits and one of Ethan's favorite lieutenants, First Lt. Benjamin Britt, was killed in action in December and Ethan expressed to Britni his desire to name his son Ben after him. Ethan was seriously wounded March 5 on a combat mission in Yusifayah. Thanks to the fast action on the ground, Ethan made it to the Baghdad hospital. It was there that they performed surgery on Ethan before flying him to Landstuhl, Germany. His twin Matt was pulled out of a field training exercise in Hohenfels to join his brother in Landstuhl. Matt made the 10 and a half hour plane flight with Ethan from Landstuhl to Bethesda, Md. on March 7 2006. He died at the Richard L. Roudebush Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Indianapolis after being in a coma. He was preceded in death by his father, Rand Biggers maternal grandfather, Angelo Ferreiro; paternal grandmother, Marion Biggers; good friend and fellow Soldier, 1LT Benjamin Britt . He was 22.
