From July through December 2011, Daniels was deployed to Helmand province, Afghanistan, as the company gunnery sergeant for 1st Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment. Throughout his tour in Afghanistan, Daniels “was a driving force behind company combat operations ensuring security in a highly unstable and kinetic battle space. He personally participated in over 200 mounted patrols, logging over 3,500 miles and 675 hours of tactical movements in order to resupply 15 fixed positions and 420 personnel dispersed across a violent 48 square kilometer area,” according to the award citation.
