2022 Grand Marshall
Danny Koch: The Purple Hearts 0900 & Los Hermanos Familia are proud to announce that this year’s Grand Marshall is Danny Koch who has advocated for Veterans. He honors Purple Heart heroes who’ve been wounded or killed, as well as Gold Star families who lost a soldier.
Koch shares these stories because his own son was wounded in Iraq. His son, Paul, was in Iraq between 2006 and 2007. While Paul was in The Triangle of Death, he was hit by an Improvised Explosive Device. In addition, he has brought awareness to the growing concern of Veteran PTSD and suicide. Please join us to honor Danny Koch!
