Cedar Key Remembers Fallen Soldier
Like a pearl inside an oyster, some treasures are found in the smallest places.
Before leaving Cedar Key for another land of sand, Ryan Lumley would break his school's shot put record.
"He was so happy came jumping across the track telling me what a good job he'd done, and I was very proud of him," said track coach, Brad Penney.
A young soldier killed while fighting for his country. The 21-year-old was one of three killed on December 3rd in Wardak Province when enemy forces attacked their unit with an improvised explosive device.
This isn't the first time cedar key has lost one of their own in battle. In 2003, Lance Cpl. Brian Buessing was killed in combat, he was just 20 years old.
