Ranger Dan Filipiak served in 1st Platoon, Bravo Company, 1st Ranger Battalion. Dan was a successful graduate of Army Airborne School, Ranger Indoctrination Course (RIP), and Army Ranger School. Furthermore, Dan deployed to combat in support of the global war on terror. He was a pleasure to be around, even in the most unpleasant of times.Yet, only months after leaving active duty, our brother in arms took his own life.

Thank you for opening this event to the public. I followed Cory on Facebook when he was running home. It was empowering watching him take on such a challenge. I was moved by such an event. I\'m proud to take on such a challenge in February. In the 3 days I formed Sua Sponte Washinton we\'ve managed to raise $300. This feeling is truly amazing. I thank all the people who\'ve helped put this event together especially my Ranger Buddy, Cory. From the bottom of my heart, God Bless You!!
