"I need to introduce to my son, to put a face and name to one of the 22. He is so much more than a number, he is a father, a husband, a son, a brother, a grandson and nephew--deeply loved.
Daniel Leonard was born on March 14, 1980 in Alamogordo, New Mexico. He is the youngest of three and such a beautiful baby who became an extraordinary man.
Daniel was an Army Combat Medic who served two tours in Iraq and one tour in Afghanistan. He was loved by the men and women he served beside and was affectionately called "Doc".
On November 21, 2014, Daniel lost his battle with PTSD by suicide. I know that my son's pain was horrific because his heart was so big and loving.
Rest in peace my sweet angel...you live in our hearts. With all my love, Mom"
