Remembering the Fallen

As everyone enjoys the three day weekend of Memorial Day as a break from work or school and the traditional start of a summer full of barbecues, being outdoors, and (in Dallas) sweating our butts off, the members of the Dallas Athletic Rugby Club wish to pause a moment and remember the fallen.


We are thankful to all US soldiers who, over the 200+ year history of the United States, have sacrificed their lives so that we may enjoy ours. We truly are grateful for their service and the ultimate sacrifice they made.


With deepest pride and admiration, we say thank you to one of our own; Tyler Trovillion, our teammate, our friend, and an outstanding soldier of the United States Marine Corps. A good, young player on the pitch, Tyler was an even better soldier who servered proudly in Iraq. His tour of duty ended on June 15, 2005 when he was killed in action. Every member of DARC thanks you, Tyler, for your unselfish service to this country and we all miss you.
