Pvt. Daren A. Smith was born in Butte, Montana and lived there until he reached middle school, when he moved to Helena. He graduated from Helena High School in 2006 and completed a semester at the University of Montana-Helena College of Technology. He joined the United States Army in March of 2007 and was deployed to Iraq on November of that year.

Pvt. Daren A. Smith died on December 13, 2007 of non-combat related injuries. His funeral was held on a cold 20-degree Winter’s day but that didn’t stop hundreds of mourners from his hometown lining the streets to honor him.

“He was the kind of guy who would do anything for you,” said a friend of Pvt. Smith. “He was just a great guy.”
