MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- A ceremony was held at Hamilton High School in Milwaukee for Marine lance corporal Jeremiah Collins Junior.
The 19 year old was killed Saturday while serving in Afghanistan.
One of his former teachers reflected on the person he was.
"He was not only a Marine but more importantly he was a son, a brother, a friend and a wonderfully promising student," said former teacher Kara Esenberg.
Others who knew Collins say they remember him for his charming personality and kind heart.
