Reflections for Special Agent Daniel Lee "Danny" Knapp

To Danny's family,

I had the honor to meet Danny when he trained at Quantico. He is a true hero....Danny served God and country and it is no surprise that he gave his life trying to save a stranger...he did not run from danger but ran to it, risking his own life...that is what a warrior does....

My prayers are with all of you...

To witness true heroes is a chance that many don't get and we have been blessed with your life Danny. I was honor that you were dating my sister and I which I could have spend sometime with you. I can't wait to meet with you on the flip side my brother! I can only pray that others will rise up and follow your example. Godspeed!

It was a great gift to have known Danny. He was easy to talk to and just a great and humble man.
