September 2009 in Wardak Province, Afghanistan.
Spc Cox was serving a second tour of duty for
the United States of America fighting
terrorism in Operation Enduring
Freedom, protecting our families and our
freedom. Spc Cox was one of two soldiers who
died of wounds sustained when their enemy forces
attacked their combat patrol vehicle with an
improvised explosive device and small arms
fire. Daniel was a highly decorated courageous
soldier and his sacrifice will not be
forgotten. Spc Cox was assigned to 2nd
Battalion, 87th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade
Combat Team, 10th Mountain (Light Infantry) out
of Fort Drum, NY. Born July 19, 1986, in
Winfield, KS, then moved with his family to Parsons when he was
in the fifth grade. He graduated from Parsons
High School in 2005.
The family invited the Patriot Guard to
attend Daniel's Full Military Honors funeral.
