    RIP Dan. You were an amazing friend, classmate, and soldier. We know you will be watching over your girls and Jordan. We will keep your memory alive with stories of the wonderful times we have spent with you. The class of 2003 and the town of Jerome will miss you greatly!

    Anonymous, you are the idiot. Just another brainwashed "patriotic American" who believes whatever the government does is right. Just the name "operation enduring freedom" is hypocritical. How is occupying a foreign country that had nothing to do with 9/11 or wmd's keeping us free? What we need is freedom from our capitalistic government

      Don't know if you watch the news, or if you can read, but we are not "occupying", Hamid Karzai has the ability to kick us out at anytime. Everything we are currently doing, we are doing with the approval of the Afghan leader. It is all done in negotiations, but one of the reasons we left Iraq had to do with the fact we could not agree on terms for U.S soldiers to be there...so we left. Afghanistan is no different, when our countries can no longer agree, the U.S will leave.

    I honestly think you should keep your opinion on war to yourself, this is to honor a fallen soldier. And I personally know that Sgt. Daniel Brown was a very honorable man. Words can't describe just how great he was. He is a true American hero who put his life on the line to fight for all of us, he was taken far too soon but I feel so blessed to have known such a thoughtful, caring, inspirational man. Rest peacefully, Dan.

    For any of you to be complaining about the war instead of sending condolences to his family or thanking him for his service is ridiculous. He paid the ultimate price for our country. He was an amazing man. He and his family of all people didn't deserve this. He left behind two beautiful girls that he never got to meet. He was due to return home in less than a month. I can assure you all that Dan was one of the greatest men that God ever made. And he will be missed by so many. There aren't enough words to express the pain his friends and family are going through. Rest in peace Dan. Thank you for all you've done. It will never be forgotten.

    "He leaves behind his wife Jordan Brown and their 3-month old twin daughters Mattie and Marlee, his brother Matt, his parents Becky and Jerry Brown and his grandparents Lee and Barbara Urie."

    Twins which he never had to opportunity to meet.

    I'm sick of this "war". Another young soldier lost and for what? He will never see his children grow up, he will never kiss his wife or hug his Mother and Father again.. it's so sad.
    I appreciate what the soldiers do for us, but I have to ask the question, what are we fighting for? The answer became clouded so long ago.
    I'm tired of turning on my news and seeing another brave soldier's face, knowing that the headline will say he is gone. Gone from here, no longer will anyone see them smile, or salute them as they pass except when they bury them with honor.
    I want the war to stop... We have lost too many.

      As weve seen in the recent past (cowardly killer of women and children), not all soliders deserve respect. Remember, just because he or she is a soldier, does not mean they are a good person. There are many A holes in uniform, many right in your city at Fort Carson. Not saying this soldier was bad, just saying, dont judge a person by a uniform.

        Eye-your and idiot. Of course not all people are good, are you? Who are you to judge anyway? There are far more better soldiers than you know, that never make the news. How about the mdical team who serviced the Town of Tal Afar in Iraq after every marketplace IED killing and injuring 100's. You never hear of the good the soldiers do just the bad. Unless you have served in this war, or any other, shut your pie whole and keep your opinions to yourself.
