            2/25/2011 ALERT: From Mr. John Childress...
  1st Lt. Daren Hidalgo
     To:  Dallastown Wrestling Family and Friends... from Mr. John Childress.
   ∙ On Monday we received word that we lost a member of our wrestling family...
  not only at Dallastown, but the York County, PA State and National Wrestling family.
  1st Lt. Daren Hidalgo was killed in the line of duty on Sunday, February 20th, while
  serving in Afghanistan assigned to G Company, 3rd Squadron, 2nd Stryker Calvary
  regiment.  Daren was a 2005 graduate of Dallastown Area High School and a 2009
  West Point graduate.  1st Lt. Daren Hidalgo was a member of the Dallastown
  wrestling team where he qualified for the District III's after winning a gold medal
  at the 2005 YAIAA AAA Sectional Tournament his senior year.  Wrestling became
  a passion for Daren, as did serving in the US Military.
Daren had a dream in case of a tragic event while serving his country...
   ∙ In lieu of flowers, Daren had asked for a memorial to be set up in his name to
  help Wounded Soldiers and provide assistance and scholarships for the
  wrestlers of Dallastown High School.  Daren is STILL reaching out his hand and
  continuing to serve his country and assist those in need.
If you wish to honor 1st Lt. Daren Hidalgo by supporting these causes...
  you may give to the Daren M. Hidalgo Memorial Fund.
