A soldier from Eastern Carolina killed in Afghanistan last September was honored with a memorial Friday afternoon.

Jennifer Tripp cut the ribbon on a bench dedicated to honor her son at the Veteran's Memorial Park in Washington.

Private Michael Murdock was killed in action on September 11th this past year.

The Mayor of Washington, Judy Jennette, presented family members with a white rose. Tripp says her son is an American hero.

Tripp says she hopes the memorial will remind everyone the sacrifices our service men and women make to protect our country.
