The U.S. Army West Point academy has posthumously appointed fallen Parkland JRTOC student Peter Wang to its class of 2025, Brittany Wallman of the Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Wang, a member of the JRTOC program at the high school, was shot while trying to hold the door of his classroom closed to protect his fellow students. He was killed along with 16 of his peers….

A petition circulated widely Monday urged the U.S. military to bury Wang with full honors saying, “His selfless and heroic actions have led to the survival of dozens in the area. Wang died a hero, and deserves to be treated as such, and deserves a full honors military burial.”

    Wow. I got teary-eyed when I heard Tammy tell this. It’s good to see Westpoint took this step because young Peter certainly was a hero and deserving of the honor.
