Sgt Daniel Lee McCall, 24, of Pace, Fla.; assigned to the 1st Battalion, 15th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, Fort Benning, Ga.; died Oct. 30 in Baghdad of wounds sustained when enemy forces engaged his unit with small-arms fire and an improvised explosive device. Also killed were Spc. Rush M. Jenkins and Pfc. Cody M. Carver.

Sgt. Daniel L. McCall of Pace, Florida will stay in the Pace High School record books until someone runs faster. But even then, his accomplishments will never fade. He still holds the 400-meter record. He had good speed and ran well. The happy-go-lucky kid could run forever and run fast. Daniel also played soccer throughout his life and football during his senior year. He was chosen to the News Journal All-Area Track second team in 2001 after finishing second at the Class 3A state championships in the 400-meters. He was an all-around athlete. Daniel enlisted in the United States Army June 2004, following in his grandfather "Duke's" footsteps, as he is a retired Vietnam Army Veteran. He was assigned to Ft. Benning, GA, for completion of Basic Training and Airborne School. Daniel was transferred to Ft. Bragg, NC, for Special Forces Training. It was at Ft. Bragg that Daniel met the love of his life, Brittnay, whom he married in April of 2006. Sgt. McCall eventually returned to Ft. Benning to serve with the 3rd Infantry Division and was deployed to Iraq in March 2007. Sgt. McCall's accomplishments while serving his country include: Combat Life Savers Training, Sniper School, Warrior Leaders Course, Airborne School and Special Forces Training. Daniel's medals for service are the Purple Heart, Parachute's Badge, Combat Infantryman Badge, Bronze Star Medal, ARCOM, AGCM, NDSM, ICM, GWTSM, and ASR. He was raised by his grandparents, Marvin and Liane McCall, who moved from Pace to Mississippi after the young man graduated and joined the Army. He was loved by all who met him and his smile would brighten up a room the moment he entered. He never complained or had a negative comment to say about anyone. He felt the Army was the best thing that ever happened to him. He was 24.
