The passing of yet another warrior: Dale McIntosh (USMC, Force Recon)

Dale McIntosh, Utah native, former Force Recon Marine-turned private security contractor has passed. Warrior SOS expresses heartfelt condolences to his surviving family members, many of whom have already passed and therefore he is currently embracing in heaven.

Dale and I spoke frequently after the unexpected passing of his brother, Blake. It really tore Dale up inside.

Thank you to the anonymous posting on the blog we did on behalf of Blake to notify us of Dale's passing. Subsequently, a search on Facebook confirmed Dale's passing. So far, according to what's written, the investigation is on-going.

Dale will be missed tremendously.

One of the last posts he wrote was that of any true warrior would value:

"The only thing we have to fear is fear itself--nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance."




  1. RIP brother. See you on the other side.

    1. So much love for this man! I will miss you Dale! So grateful for the time I knew you. You touched my life deeply and will be soo deeply missed!

  2. RIP Dale. Good to know you. JB

  3. RIP Dale. You will be missed.

  4. Any news on the location/time of the service?

    Dale was a good man and I would like to pay my respects.

  5. Take care buddy, I know it must have hurt a lot more than you thought it would. RIP
