MSG Daniel J. Lovell
Daniel was born in Manassas, VA on December 4th, 1984.
He served honorably in the U. S. Army for 16 years, to include multiple deployments supporting the War on Terrorism. He earned several awards and honors including the Meritorious Service Medal (1), the Joint Service Commendation Medal (2), the U.S. Army Commendation Medal (2), the Joint Meritorious Unit Award (1), the Meritorious Unit Commendation (2), the Army Good Conduct Medal (5), the National Defense Service Medal (1), the Iraq Campaign Medal (2), the Inherent Resolve Campaign Medal (1), the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary and Service Medals (1 each), the Korean Defense Service Medal (1), NCO Professional Development Ribbons (3) the U.S. Army Service and Overseas Service Ribbons (3), an Aviation Badge, and Marksmanship Qualification Badges- Expert Rifle and Expert Pistol. While Daniel was an exceptional soldier, he was even more so, an exceptional man. His love for others knew no bounds. He instantly made long term friends wherever he went, and spared no effort to show his care for them (many times through elaborate, over-the-top pranks).
On August 13th, 2019, Danny passed as a result of his ongoing battle with PTSD.
While we all miss Danny, we truly mourn for those who never knew him.
