On August 31, 1999, Dietz joined the Navy after graduating from basic training at the Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Illinois, he completed Gunner's Mate "A" School, which also at Great Lakes. He began training as a Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL instructor (BUD/S) and graduated with Class 232 in 2001. After completing SEAL Qualification Training and SEAL Delivery Vehicle Training, Dietz went to the Basic Airborne Course at Fort Benning, Georgia, where he continued to the Basic Airborne Course. He was posted to Task Unit Bravo as the optional SDV pilot and the ordnance and engineering department chief shortly after checking in at SEAL Delivery Vehicle Team 2 in Virginia Beach, Virginia, on November 8, 2001. Dietz was sent with his Special Reconnaissance team to Afghanistan in April 2005 to assist Naval Special Warfare Squadron TEN in the Global War on Terrorism's indictment.

Operation Red Wings was a counter-insurgency mission carried out by the US Armed Forces to kill or capture Ahmad Shah, code name Ben Sharmak), a well-known terrorist and head of the militia. Navy SEAL Team TEN's operation was carried out on Friday, June 27th; the four-man team was made up of 2nd Class Matthew G. Axelson and 2nd Class Marcus Luttrell, supporting the role of snipers, while team leader Navy Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy were spotters; second Class Danny P. Dietz and team leader Navy Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy were spotters.

After goat herders discovered the SEALs and alerted the Taliban, they were killed, and the mission was jeopardized. After the SEALs were surrounded by Taliban rebels who outnumbered them twenty-five to one, a firefight erupted. Murphy stormed the base in order to receive reception and call for assistance, and he was able to pinpoint the SEALs' location as well as the number of enemies. While making the call, he was shot in the back and received the Medal Of Honor posthumously. Murphy then returned to his team to continue the war. Murphy, Axelson, and Danny Dietz were killed, but an RPG knocked Luttrell unconscious, causing him to die.

A team of eight Navy SEALs and eight 160th SOAR Army Night Stalkers was sent to assist the Navy, as well as eight 160th SOAR Army Night Stalkers. However, all sixteen special forces soldiers aboard the helicopter died when the CH-47 Chinook was struck by a rocket-propelled grenade ignited the fuel tanks just as the soldiers were set to fast rope. Lieutenant Commander Erik S. Kristensen, the first-ranking officer to die in the mission, and Kip A. Jacoby, the youngest soldier to die in the operation, died at the age of 21.

Marcus Luttrell, SEAL Team TEN's sole survivor, was rescued by green berets six days later, aided by an Afghan villager who sheltered him. Danny Dietz, Matthew Axelson, and Michael Murphy were all declared dead in action after their bodies were discovered on July 4th.
