Dane was a great guy im going to miss him alot. I first met dane at Fort Hood. Dane got to Iraq a week before me so when i got here he showed me all around. I was with him on sept 5th brfore we rolled out we were joking with each other this was are first misson together so we were excited to get to work together finally after knowing each for about 4 months. If there was anyone in the army i wanted to go out on a mission with it was Dane he was by far the most high speed person in the army.To danes family im truely sorry for your loss. R.I.P. PFC Dane Balcon you were loved by everyone that has ever met you Im sorry i had to be there at the end but im happy i met you and Dane you have changed my life thank you.

To the family of Dane Balcon. My name is Reyna and I was on the Drumline with your son. Ever since we met Dane it was always about the military. He loved fighting for us. For his country and he left a lasting mark on everyone he met. He was the kind of guy who could make anyone smile. Put anyone in a good mood. He just loved to have fun. I am extremely sorry for your loss and i want to let you know you have full support of all his friends with anything you need. thanks for raining a beautiful, and wonderful son. He will always be remebered and loved for everything he did.

Always, Reyna

To the family who raised this young remarkable young man I send my most heart-felt condolences. PFC Balcon had so much to give and I know the world would be a much better place if everyone had the same motivation, desire, and spontaneity that your son possessed. I had the fortunate opportunity to spend some time with Dane and just know that your son died for what he truly believed in. He could have easily remained in a non-combat environment but to Dane this was worst than death itself. I believe Dane had a mission as he told me there is a long legacy of combat tested vets in the Balcon Family and he wanted to prove that he too belonged on that wall of courage. I will miss PFC Dane Balcon, extraordinary soldier! examplarary human being.

I have just learned of the death of Private First Class Dane R. Balcon. As the State Chaplain of the Georgia Society Sons Of The American Revolution and speaking for our President, Charlie A. Newcomer, III and more than 1,400 SAR members around the State of Georgia, may I most humbly express the condolences of a grateful Society. Wrapped in the integrity of service to our nation and the inestimable values of duty, honor and country, your American hero stood on a wall of freedom for us all. His life and his love of country epitomized every attribute of patriotism the Sons Of The American Revolution hold dear. And, as Americans, we could never repay the debt we owe him ..!! Nor the debt we owe you… his family!!!

hi my name is kristin and i went to warren with your son dane. im not really good at this but who would be? im really sorry. i want you to know that your son was an amazing person altogether. the first picture that came to my head as soon as i heard dane passed was his smile and his laugh.although we talked here and there i am glad to say he has made an everlating impression on me. i am happy to have met such a strong human being. your son is a true hero in my eyes. we are all the better for having known him even though it was for a short while, but he came into our hearts, and we will keep him in our hearts, and we were left with the one desire that we will one day meet again!
RIP "Lil Dane"

You were a great guy Dane and we will miss you all. I won't forgot how you first taught us to spin our rifles and became our mentor in that aspect. You are a hero.

Carla, our prayers are with you and your family at this time. We are deeply sorry for this tragic loss of a young life. We know Dane was loved and respected by many. Dane served proudly and leaves a hero's legacy.

Dane was an amazing person. He could always make you laugh. He loved to shop. Every time I've seen him in school he always had a smile on his face. Then we both got stationed in Texas together and every time I was at the mall I saw him shopping. Your family will be in my prayers and I know how deployment feels. My husband is due to deploy soon and I am also in the army and feel getting deployed.

Dane, all of us from Sand Creek will miss you so much! You were such an amazing person, I will never forget seeing you play in the drumline at school. You were so talented. Rest in peace old friend.... And for his family, my heart and prayers go out to you, as does those who knew him at Sand Creek.
