It’s been nearly 5 years since local hero, Sgt. Daniel Gurr, was fatally shot while on patrol in Afghanistan and the community is invited to remember his sacrifice as well as all fallen soldiers at a 5K event on Friday, August 5th, the 5 -year anniversary of Gurr’s death. The event will be a nighttime 5K followed by a candlelight vigil at the Vernal Cemetery, which Daniel’s mother Tracy Bede(Bee-Dee) says will be especially meaningful because most of Sgt. Gurr’s battalion is planning to travel to Vernal to attend. “This 5K run is not just to remember Daniel but every soldier that has paid the ultimate sacrifice.Thirteen soldiers that actually served with Daniel will be coming out,” shares Tracy. “Many of these soldiers are just out of the service and can’t believe the support our community gives to military families. They are amazed at how a small town has such a huge American heart. Most of these soldiers are from big cities where they just don’t have that kind of support.” The “Remember the Fallen” 5K walk/run will be held at Uintah High School on August 5th at 8pm.
