Officials celebrated the son of Broderick Brown and Angela Criswell in a way they will never forget, but it was also an honor they never wanted.
"Really you don’t want to be here," said Brown, standing beside the Veterans Memorial Wall in Downtown Jacksonville. "You want him to be here."
Twenty-two-year-old DeAngelo Brown of United States Army was one of four fallen servicemen added to the wall Monday morning.
Brown died last August, after being shot at a Colorado Springs bar.
