Sgt. 1st Class Daniel A. Brozovich of Greenville, Pa., began military service as a gung-ho Marine and never lost that edge in 20 years with the Army National Guard. He was on his second tour in the war and he never wavered about the worthiness of the cause, nor did he complain about the disruptions it caused in his civilian life. He believed in his country. He wanted to keep it safe. Daniel spent much of his boyhood in the Pittsburgh area. He attended Avalon and North Hills schools before moving and graduating from Bedford High School in 1982 before he enlisted in the Marines at 18 and served for almost four years. Then he joined the National Guard in 1986, after his hitch in the corps ended. He had deployed three times since 2002 on active-duty missions. The first was to Europe to provide security at military installations. Then he served in Iraq in 2004 with the 28th Infantry Division. He returned in September as a member of the 1st Battalion, 213th Air Defense Artillery. In civilian life, he was employed by the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections. He worked in correctional industries, supervising prisoners on job details. Initially assigned to Fayette County, he transferred last spring to the regional prison in Mercer County. Before becoming a state employee, he worked for Werner Co. in Greenville. In addition to his wife and son, he is survived by a stepdaughter, Carrie Negrich, and his parents, Anthony Brozovich, and Gloria Pollock. He was 42.
