Woodbury soldier Dan Drevnick and two of his comrades were killed by an enemy rocket in Iraq in July 2009.
In his honor, his family set up a memorial fund that gives money to veterans (or family members) who are studying law enforcement, just as Dan was before he died while serving.
The event will feature guest speaker Lt. Col. John Morris, and the music will be provided by Chris Falteisek, Mo McNeary, Sarah Sprinthall and the Emerald Society of Minnesota.
The concert is set for 4-5:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 4, at Woodbury Lutheran Church. It is free and open to the public.
Daniel Drevnick died on July 17, 2009, after a low-flying rocket landed in his Basra, Iraq, compound. Specialists James Wertish and Carlos Wilcox were also killed in the attack.
Work on the scholarship fund began soon after, and it took a lot of time—and plenty of volunteer work from others—to found the memorial fund, his father, Ken Drevnick, told Patch in March.
“We wanted to do something to keep Dan’s name alive,” he said.
