Ashwood community honors local fallen soldier

Posted: Updated:

This summer, a Chattanooga neighborhood will fly the American flag in honor of a fallen soldier.

Private First Class Jonathan Hall was killed by an IED in Afghanistan three years ago.

Memorial Day, the Ashwood subdivision, where his grandparents live, unveiled a plaque in his honor and raised a flag in his memory.

Hall's family tells us it's not just a tribute to him, but to all the men and woman who serve our country.

"I just think it's important that we recognize our soldiers every day, not just on Memorial Day or Veteran's Day, but every day. And, any time you see a soldier just tell them thank you and how much you appreciate them," says Hall's mother, Robynn Harrison.

The flag which was raised Monday was donated by Hall's grandparents and has flown over the U.S. Capitol.

It will fly in the Ashwood community through the summer.
