Danny Dietz Scholarship of Honor

In 1999 Danny graduated from Heritage High School and joined the Navy three months later. While in high school, he played football his senior year and was active in weightlifting and swimming. Danny had two weeks of service left in Afghanistan when he was killed on June 28, 2005. Danny was posthumously awarded one of our nation's highest honors for heroism, the Navy Cross. Danny's widow, Maria, said he was not only her friend and role model, but her hero. He is a true hero to so many.
