RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) - Nearly a month after four members of the military were shot and killed outside a recruiting center in Chattanooga, Tenn., the city of Russellville pays their respects.
One of the four killed, a hometown hero, was Staff Sergeat David Wyatt.
Over a thousand people attended the candlelight vigil held in Staff Sgt. Wyatt's honor, including his family, any military members from across the state, congressmen and his graduating class of 1998.
Those 1998 alumni were the organizers of the service, wanting a night to honor their classmate from the place they first met him.
"Ever since we graduated, if one thing happened to one of us, it happened to all of us. To support each other through good times and bad times. We're extended family," said Brian Duesterbeck, a friend of Staff Sgt. Wyatt, who also organized the vigil.
