Fallen Warrior

Posted: August 16, 2011 in Blog, Dan Laguna, Events, Special Operations

Another sad day for the Special Ops Community. Two men were killed serving their country. One is from Layton, UT. His body is being flown in today. I and my son-in-law, Aaron Quinlan served in the same Special Operations Unit and will be riding with the Patriot Guard Riders to greet this fallen soldier at the Salt Lake International Airport and escorting him to his hometown in Layton, UT. Our hearts go out to his family and friends. I want to thank him and his family for his service to our great country. He will be greatly missed.  NSDQ (Night Stalkers Don’t Quit) SGDM (Six Guns Don’t Miss).

Dan was invited to speak at the Native American Chamber of Commerce held at the Zions Bank Building in Salt Lake City, UT. We met the most amazing people who have similar desires to pay it forward. When you are so blessed you just want to share and help others to enjoy the same blessings.

Dan and his wife Deonna at the Ops Gear Booth for the Book Signing

You Have To Live Hard To Be Hard Book Signing Event was held at the the Gun Show at the South Town Expo Center in Sandy Utah on Saturday, April 9th. Thanks to Ops Gear for letting me sign books at their booth. It was a great day and we met a lot of nice people. I wish now that I would have thought to get a group picture of all the Ops Gear employees with me. They are a great bunch of people.

We want to thank everyone for their support. For those who couldn’t attend the Gun Show and Book Signing Event you can order my book “You Have To Live Hard To Be Hard” at:

I just had the most wonderful evening. Deonna and I got to meet the greatest bunch of guys. I spoke at the Wounded Warrior Retreat in Park City, Utah. I was supposed to give them encouraging words to help them with their struggles but it turned out that I am the one who benefited most from this experience. It was truly an honor to be amongst these young heroes who have given so much for their country. It would be an honor to stand next to them in defense of our country. I wish them all the best and hope our paths will cross again someday.
