Norfolk elementary students have dedicated a plaque and a tree to US Army Sgt. Adam Kennedy, a Norfolk native who was killed in Iraq in April.
"This is an opportunity to educate the children about the importance of honoring the fallen soldiers and the importance of not taking our democratic freedoms for granted," Superintendent of School Chris Augusta-Scott said.
Kennedy was killed on April 8 during combat near the city of Ad Diwaniyah, which is located south of Baghdad. Governor Deval Patrick attended his funeral.
