According to "The Stand Alone Battalion" written by Jerald W. Berry and Joe R. Alexander, Danny died in the Battle of Hill 474. Danny died the same day with Richard Albert Burgess, 19, of Tower, Minnesota. The day before, a medic, PFC Joseph Honan, 20, of Scranton, Pennsylvania, was also killed and two others were wounded. They were all Currahees.

Danny served with the 3-506th Infantry, part of the 101st Airborne Division.

May they all rest in peace.
Godspeed!
