Happy Birthday Shipmate

Danny Dietz, who would have turned 32 today, was a member of the SEAL team that participated in Operation Red Wings. Only team member Marcus Luttrell survived. His teammates Danny, Matt Axelson, and Michael Murphy perished after they were attacked by Taliban fighters who were alerted by a goatherd and his son. 13 more were lost when a rescue helicopter that was sent was downed by a Taliban RPG. The details of this fight can be found in Marcus Luttrell's book "Lone Survivor." There's also a book about Lt. Michael Murphy titled "Seal of Honor." If you haven't read them, I highly recommend that you do.

Happy birthday Petty Officer Dietz, I look forward to meeting you someday.
