Madison High Remembers Fallen Army Soldier
Madison High's student body was part of the crowd along the funeral procession route for Army Specialist Jason Shelton. Shelton graduated from Madison in 2009.
The 22-year-old was in a fatal accident last month while serving in Germany.
Principal Steve Bowlin was Shelton's PE teacher. He says the show of respect was appropriate, days before Veterans Day.
"They would have learned far more in that 10 minute motorcade than they would in a history book," Bowlin tells us.
Others lined 25/70 to let the Shelton family know how much they care.
"Yeah, to help out and honor him for what he's done for us," says Harry Brazil of Madison County. "Well I figured, if anybody serves our country, we ought to serve them if something happens to them."
Jason Shelton was later laid to rest at Shelton Cemetery in Marshall.
