Peter Wang, 15, an American Hero

Peter Wang, 15, an American Hero

My uncles, my Dad, my Mom (we intern her ashes there, next to my Dad, this spring) and several extended relatives are all buried at Arlington, with full military honors (except my Mom, she will not get military honors).

I think all of them would be proud to have Peter Wang with them.

He was a patriot who wore our country’s uniform proudly and stood bravely at his assumed post – while under fire – to hold the school door open so others might quickly escape first.

Wang was not part of a military branch (JROTC) that does offers basic training — so he technically does not qualify for such an honor – but I think most people would agree, the virtues he displayed last week, bravery under fire, and willingness to risk his own life, so that others might live – is enough.

He wore that uniform proudly and bought respect for it – with his life.

It’s enough for me.

I plan to sign the petition for this young soldier, to be buried like one.
