Spec Dane Rodrigo Balcon
Birth: Apr. 27, 1988
Glendale
Maricopa County
Arizona, USA
Death: Sep. 5, 2007, Iraq

Spc. Dane R. Balcon of Colorado Springs, Colorado graduated from Sand Creek High School in 2006 and went back to the school in May 2007 to let teachers and students know how he was doing in the Army. Born at Luke Air Force Base he spent many weekends as a child in Fort Bragg, N.C. with his father, John Balcon, who was in the Army. Becoming a soldier was something he seemed destined to do. During school he joined the ROTC where he paid close attention to every detail of his uniform, and everyone else's, to the point that he could distinguish whether they used starch. He had a love for the military and for serving his country. It's what he always said he wanted to do and had planned to have a career in the military. He also loved the drums and was very involved with all aspects of music at school joining the school's drumline in his senior year, even though he couldn't read music sheets very well. His Awards and ribbons earned while serving his country include: The Bronze Star, Purple Heart, Army Good Conduct Medal, Combat Action Badge, National Defense Service Medal, Iraqi Campaign Medal, Global War On Terrorism Service Medal, Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon, Weapons Qualification Badge, Expert w/Rifle. He died in Balad, Iraq, of wounds suffered from an improvised explosive device at age 19.
