SPC. Brenden Salazar remembered by huge crowd in Oviedo FL

Today in Oviedo Florida at Hagerty High School, a plaque was dedicated to a former student and fallen hero, SPC. Brenden Salazar. He was killed in Afghanistan on July 22, 2012.

This was taken from the video I was shooting of the dedication. While the video should be online tomorrow, when I saw this image of the saluting shadow over Brenden's picture, it was almost as if his spirit was saluting back at all the people gathered together.

Army Specialist Brenden Salazar was killed while serving in Afghanistan on July 22, 2012. He was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173 Airborne Brigade Combat Team Caserma Ederle Italy. He was 20 years old.
