THREE JROTC CADETS POSTHUMOUSLY AWARDED MEDALS OF HEROISM
Peter Wang, a 15-year-old member of the Junior ROTC who was killed as he tried to help fellow students escape a mass shooting in Parkland, Fla., last week, has been posthumously admitted to the U.S. Military Academy. Wang and two other freshmen cadets, Martin Duque and Alaina Petty, both 14, were also awarded the Medal of Heroism – the highest medal given to Junior Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps cadets. Classmates and family said that Wang dreamed of attending West Point. The admission to the academy came on the same day as his funeral.
