Daniel Wallace loved being in the military and helping others. He was a man of faith and he loved his family.
“Danny is my fallen hero,” said his mother, Karen, through tears at a press conference on Nov. 5 in Frankfort.
Wallace, of Dry Ridge, was killed on Oct. 31 in Afghanistan when his unit was attacked by enemy forces.
“Sgt. Daniel Wallace was a true patriot who willingly stood up and answered the call to serve his nation in a time of need,” Maj. Gen. Edward W. Tonini, Adjutant General for Kentucky, said.
