Fallen sailor remembered at his Houston alma mater


The lawn of Austin High School in southeast Houston was decorated with 64 flags, one for each graduate who has died in uniform.

Two wreaths were placed at the school's fallen heroes memorial wall. The second wreath honored U.S. Navy Petty Officer Second Class Jorge Luis Velasquez of the class of 1995.

He died in a non-combat incident in Bahrain.
