Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps cadets Peter Wang, Alaina Petty, and Martin Duque were members of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida and were killed in the school shooting on Wednesday.
All three cadets are being honored with JROTC Heroism Medals, an Army Cadet Command spokesman told Army Times.
According to USA Today, Wang died in his JROTC uniform while helping others escape.
Wang was also posthumously accepted to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
Governor Rick Scott (R-FL) also praised the three cadets.
I’ve directed the @FLGuard to honor the three fallen JROTC members from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. @FLGuard members will be attending funeral services and paying respect to these JROTC members, their families and loved ones. https://t.co/0w8Lnuh5ro
