Daniel R. Stith (May 5, 1911 to Jan. 8, 1984) was a World War II veteran.
He began active duty on Jan. 6, 1943 with Co. 49th Engineering Combat Regiment at Camp Carson, Colorado.
During his basic training there, the temperature dropped to 21 degrees below zero. Stith contracted frostbite and pneumonia and was sent to the camp hospital. He was soon shipped out where he would finish his basic training on the battlefield.
He was pinned down in a foxhole for nearly two weeks, and ate bugs and spiders to stay alive.
