Spc. Daniel E. Gomez Obituary

Daniel E. Gomez's father, Juan Gomez, recalled that during his son's last visit home in early June while on a R&R, Daniel's thoughts were half a world away. "He was telling me all the time he was ready to go back," Juan Gomez said. "He wanted to be with his buddies and take care of them." Gomez, 21, of Warner Robbins, Ga., was killed July 18 by explosives and small-arms fire in Adhamiyah. He was a 2004 high school graduate and was assigned to Schweinfurt, Germany. Gomez was drawn to the military and at first wanted to be an Air Force officer. He attended Texas A&M University on an ROTC scholarship and enlisted in the Army two years ago. "He wanted to be a corpsman, a combat medic," Juan Gomez said. "He did a paper on medics while in school and was impressed with their courage, how they performed their jobs in difficult circumstances." He also is survived by his mother, Juanita. "He was a big-hearted person who took care of everybody, even the Iraqis," Juan Gomez said. "We didn't know how many lives he touched until we started receiving messages from people all over."
