I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country. And to your family and loved ones I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

First To Fire!

"Daniel Ray parker will be missed. It is 2013 and I happen to think about Daniel when I first met him in 1998 in the apartments where he used to live. He had great character and was well liked by his peers. I did not get to know him as much at that time but his service motivated 2 of my friends. One is a 2nd lieutenant and one is a specialist. Proudly serving the United States Army. Without Daniel, these two boys would not be serving the military. We still talk about him and reflect on the days of our youth and the great memories we had with daniel at the time of his living heart. We miss you Daniel and we bring nothing but love to the Parker family."
Billie-Josh-Neil of Laguna Niguel, CA

"To the family and friends of Daniel Parker: I never met Daniel but for years I have been wearing a bracelet that bears his name. I have a son the same age as Daniel and think of him every day. I can't begin to imagine how it feels to suffer the loss you have suffered and nothing I can say can ease your pain. I've read how he effected the people in his life and you should be proud of the young man you raised. The only solice Ican offer is the fact that I believe we will be reunited with our loved ones some day and I look forward to the day I will meet him in heaven.God bless you and God bless the soul of Daniel .You will be rewarded someday for giving the greatest gift you could give the world by being reunited with Daniel in heaven. I think of you all often and know in my heart that you will see him again someday."
Michele Strain of Charlottesville,Virginia

"Although we did not know Daniel, we purchased a flag in his memory for the Findlay, Ohio Healing Field in 2004. We were so sad for the death of someone so young. Please know that we continue to think of him, and to honor him for his sacrifice. This week, on Veteran's Day, the information on the ribbon placed on Daniel's flag will be transcribed onto a paper brick. This brick and many others like it will be used to build a wall at Whittier Elementary School to help the students understand the importance of this day. Daniel will not be forgotten. We pray that you have found some measure of peace."

"I only know PFC Parker for a short period! I will never for get him though. I always tell anyone that uses the word tote about this young man that made the ultimate sacrifice for his country. Let me explain I just arrived to the unit and move in across the hall from Parker. Just received my thing from Korea and asked him if he would help me tote some boxes? His reply was" What is a tote?" I know then this was a very young ambitious man! I give everyone of the family and friends my heart. I would like to say Mrs. kelley of S.C. always sends a text on his behalf to commemorate this solder"

I wish I could take the families pain away but I can't. I am committed to loving ALL people, myself and our environment. I am committed to working on my happiness everyday because so many have died for my freedom to live my life. Thank you is not enough but it is all I have.

"To the Parker Family,

Daniel graduated a year before me at EHS, however I did get the privilege to be in ROTC with him and I can say he was a friend who I looked up to in ROTC. He will be missed and may God give you peace and blessings. We shall always remember. Thanks to Stan Crippen future students and residents will be able to see the sacrifice that Daniel has made for them. May God Bless You!"

"To the family, friends and loved ones of PFC Daniel Parker,

Daniel is in my thoughts and prayers, and may he continue to rest in peace. I wanted to let you know the 2-44 ADA proudly displays a large photograph of Daniel in the Battalion's main conference room next to the BN CDR and BN CSM's office. That photo is always there, as if Daniel is still watching out for the soldiers and families of the 2-44 as they just deployed in April 2008 again. The photo also has unit insignia and a description of Daniel. It is never moved, nor anything else in that room, for it is considered PFC Parker's room - he he held to the utmost respect and looks out after all there.

PFC Parker, your sacrifice was the utmost. May you continue to shine your light your fellow soldiers.

Strike Fear"

"God Bless you Soldier, you were more than a servicemember you were a courageous young man. I had the chance to attend Basic Training with him at Ft. Sill, OK. We all grew close as members of the U.S.A.F.A.T.C. 1/19th Field Artillery, we where in the same platoon together known as the "Bulldogs" apart of the Scorpions Battalion. We all had our times, getting to know each other, all of us far away from home, but through it all we became a family. So though I could never understand the pain those of the Parker have in their heart. I just want them to know we also feel pain for your lost. And to you PFC Daniel R. Parker: "Battle I will always cherish your memories the times that we had, and we will always be Bulldogs til I see you again." "May God Bless you"."

"Remembering you today,

We think of you everyday, but today (9/11), is a day that is especially hard for us. We were watching a home video last night of when you were 8 years old. Even then, you were a fine young man! Organizing 4th of July parades with the other kids, playing Army men behind my house, and taking care of David, Korin and Nick, making sure they got to walk on the grass barefoot. Also, for teaching David how to run fast away from dogs! We lost you too soon, you had so many more things for you to teach us. But, we are sure the Lord has much more bigger plans for you and needed you to be with him. We miss you very much and you will always be in our hearts."

"Itís been over two years since PFC Daniel Parkers death and I still think about him all the time. Recently, I have found myself thinking about him even more because of the Baseball playoffs. Iím a SF Giants fan and he was an Angels fan. The last conversation I had with him was the typical guy banter about whose team was better. Now his team has a chance to make it to the World Series, and I canít help but root for the Angels. I know Daniel has the best seat in the houseÖGo Angels!

We miss you Parker.

"To the family of PFC Parker,
I am sorry for your loss. I knew Daniel pretty well from AIT training at Fort Bliss, TX, and also being assinged to the 2nd and 44th ADA at Fort Campbell.

Please accept my condolences on the loss of your Daniel. I found his name accidentally on a website, and felt I must write to you. My son is Daniel Parker, also.

"To the parents and family of Daniel Parker:

There is a wonderful creek flowing through the city of Minneapolis, named Minnehaha Creek. It starts in Lake Minnetonka and ends in the Mississippi River. There are 15 wooden bridges spanning this creek. Each wooden bridge spanning Minnehaha Creek as it ripples through Minneapolis now is a memorial to each 18-year-old who has died in the Iraq war. A small bronze plaque, each one about the size of a man's wallet, is fastened at the apex of each railing. The man who created this plaques wants to remain anonymous. He didn't do this for publicity, or for gain. He's a veteran himself, having enlisted in the Navy during Vietnam. He's nearing retirement age, which for him means more time to build toys for his five grandchildren. But it also means that he's earned some perspective on mortality.

The idea didn't come all at once. They never do, he said. Over his years in south Minneapolis, he's always found the creek a dependably peaceful place to ride his bike. And it is, an ancient stream whose oaks and elms muffle the drone of the city. Its current now is marked with the leaves of another summer gone. He's a small, stocky man, whose face bears the lines of someone who's often squinting, whether at his work or at his ideas. "What does this do to our American psyche when we're not allowed to mourn?" he asked. "Do we, as a general public, need to mourn our soldiers collectively? I think we do, but we're being deprived of mourning now. We need a place to speak to these kids, but there's nothing, no ceremonies."

So he has a ceremony. "I tell each one, 'Here you are in this beautiful place,' and I describe what it looks like. It's so beautiful and peaceful compared to where they've just come from. And then -- and I know this sounds corny as hell -- but I step back and salute."

(excerpted from a Star Tribune column by Kim Ode, September 26, 2004).

My dog Wendy and I walk the creek on a regular basis. I want to thank you for your son's service to our country. Each time we cross the bridge we pause at Daniel's plaque, and remark at how peaceful this place is. Right now, the oak leaves are falling on the water as it flows south, and squirrels are running around gathering food for winter. We truly enjoy our time along the creek - and we have soldiers like your Daniel to thank for the freedom.

God bless."

"To the parents of Daniel R. Parker,
Although we can never replace what you have lost in this time of trouble, we will never forget what your son meant to us and the common bond we share. We do what we do, not to attain praise. We do this, so others can remain free from the world of oppression. I never met your son, but now I wear a constant reminder of him on my right wrist that he will never be forgotten. Peace be unto you that he be at the right hand of GOD forever. And always know that eventhough he is not at your finger-tips, he is only a thought away.

Thank you, PFC Parker. I salute you."

"In Loving Memory..Its been a year..8/12/04

At the rising of the sun and at its going down, We remember them.
At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of Winter, We remember them.
At the opening of buds and in the rebirth of Spring, We remember them.
At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of Summer, We remember them.
At the rustling of leaves and the beauty of Autumn, We remember them.
At the beginning of the year and when it ends, We remember them.
As long as we live, they too will live;
for they are now a part of us, as we remember them.
