Daniel was going to be my brother in law. He and my sister got engaged 1 month before he was deployed. Daniel was killed after being deployed only 1 and 1/2 months ago. He was a good guy, and my sister loves him very much. His death seems so senseless to me, and the family has no more details regarding it other than "non-hostile". Daniel had everything to live for, and we don't even know how he died, which makes the greiveing harder, not having any answers to why or how....
