It was surely an emotional Memorial Day in Kent, where family members of Army Spc. Adam Hamilton were on hand as a road in front of Kent Roosevelt High School was named after him.
Hamilton was killed in action last year in Afghanistan.
Hamilton's now-retired high school principal Roger Sidoti told Channel 3 News the ceremony and road dedication were fitting.
"I can't think of a better way to honor a fallen hero than to have a proclamation and at this strip of road in front of the high school where he graduated and he had great memories and in front of the cemetery where he looks over this school every day - this is perfect. This is just perfect."
Hamilton's mother, Nancy Creston, thanked the community for ongoing support.

Three Kent Roosevelt High School juniors remain hospitalized following a one-car crash off Thursday afternoon.
"We responded to the scene and found that two girls were trapped in the vehicle and that one girl was ejected from the vehicle," Kent Police Lt. Paul Canfield said.
The vehicle ended up in the grass off of River Bend Boulevard in Kent. Police received a call at 2:45 regarding the accident.
Canfield says by the time the Jaws of Life finished removing the girls from the car, the vehicle was in bad shape.
All three girls were juveniles and were taken to Akron Children's Hospital and Akron City Hospital. One was taken by a medical helicopter.
School officials tell AkronNewsNow that the students' injuries appear to be non life-threatening.
Witnesses tell police they may have been racing with other vehicles.
