Brother of Daniel

Daniel L Harmon was my younger brother. We were very proud of him and miss him very much. To clear up any misconceptions, he was an Alaskan Native. He once went AWOL from the Army because they wouldn't send him to Viet Nam, thats how much he loved this country.

SFC Bob Smyers

I had only been a member of the LRRP for 19 days when Dan was KIA while being extracted from a hot contact with the NVA. I was told by one of the men,Ron Coon who was on the team and on his 5th or 6th mission,that Dan had saved his life and in the process of yet trying to save another team member(who died 14 days later after being extracted) he, Dan, lost his own life. The news really sadden the men of the platoon as he had been the first since the origin of the LRRP platoon. It was short Dan but the way you presented yourself to me will cause me to always remember you. SUA SPONTE...RLTW. "No greater hath a man but to give his life for a friend".

From His Lieutenant

I was the LRRP platoon leader for Ron Bonert and Danny. They were a package. Ron from Chicago .. Danny from Alaska. Ron was a city kid and Danny an Alaskan native American. From the formation of our LRRP unit (Nov 66) until they were KIA ... our unit had never lost a man. I had left the unit before they were KIA ... and when I heard the news I cried. After 30 years, I'd love to contact his family and tell them how brave and tough he was. I gave several formal speeches upon returning home. In each of them, Ron and Danny were at the heart of the theme. Mike Lapolla
