The United High School Air Force ROTC paid tribute to our fallen hero from Lyndon B. Johnson High School. Lance Corporal David Lee Espinoza graduated from Lyndon B. Johnson High School in 2019. As a Marine, he was among the 13 American American troops who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country in a suicide bombing near Kabul's Hamid Karzai International Airport.
Espinoza was honored by Major Jose Loya and UHS's ROTC with a ceremony that displayed a pair of boots and an American flag for each of the 13 fallen soldiers. Major Loya called each soldier's name out loud as the ROTC saluted each fallen hero. At the end of the ceremony, Major Loya and the ROTC paid their respects to Lance Corporal Espinoza's parents and thanked them for their son's service to our country.
