Port St. Lucie academy leader starts award for non-combat military deaths

PORT ST. LUCIE — After last year's Memorial Day service, Col. Alan Weierman learned a local soldier killed by a peer at Fort Hood was not represented among the crosses erected to honor fallen servicemen and women.
Students, working from a list provided by Weierman, commanding officer of the Southeastern Military Academy in Port St. Lucie, placed the crosses draped with dog tags. Lt.

When that information was brought to his attention, Weierman decided to do something about it.
