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 mother, Nancy Creston, thanked the community for ongoing support.
