Free Concert to Benefit Woodbury’s Hero at Home Program

The memorial fund was set up in honor of Dan Drevnick, a 2005 Woodbury High School graduate who died while serving in the military. The event is set for Nov. 4.

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.

On Nov. 4, a free concert will be held for the Hero at Home program. A freewill offering will be accepted to help the Daniel Drevnick Memorial Fund.

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.
