Trust me bot we all know what the USMC sub is
I attended Peter Wang's memorial service in Coral Springs, FL. The JROTC did a great job pall bearing their fellow Cadet. Some professional Army Honor Guard folded a flag and played taps while various other ROTC, Honor Guard, military riders, etc. stood by to show their support.
The traditional portion of the service included continuous chanting, the burning of some of his possessions, and the release of some doves.
I spent a good amount of time talking with his fellow Cadets and all the other people who showed up to support this hero. RIP.
This is really amazing. Thank you for sharing this and really happy you could attend.

Hi, I got the email with the address and will be sending him a patch and jump wings. Are his parents Chinese? I am Chinese American and would like to write a short letter in Chinese but I just want to be 100% sure they will be able to read it. thank you.
They are Chinese, but please forgive me as I don’t know if there are different types.
The only thing I'm aware of right now that's actually being funded is completion of widening of 160 to 4 lanes from the SC state line up through to 485, but that's not even expected to begin for another 4 years or so.
There was talk of finally taking Carowinds across S. Tryon to 160 where it would meet Sam Neely (IIRC), which would then be extended to meet Winget, which would itself be completed to connect past McAlister Park to the current neck connected to Shopton Rd. West. Problem with that is that while it's been in the plans for a long time, the Sanctuary neighborhood and surround lands have been/are being developed and there's some high-dollar properties there, and those neighbors are fighting that completion for fear of traffic issues.
There's also supposed to be a mixed-use greenway/cycling path put in along Westinghouse Blvd between 160 and S. Tryon but I don't know any details on that, probably a few years off at least.
If all that is a few years off it all maybe worthless to an extent with as quickly as Steele creek is growing. Although the greenway would be nice to have.
How is this being worked, exactly? Don't his parents barely understand English?
Ah, looks like son is helping to translate.
I've just caught up with the updates, I'll apologise firstly for not being of the military or from the US, but I'm so glad this hero gets the burial he deserves. He exemplifies everything not only a good soldier should be, but the best traits of what it is to be a human. It's absolutely tragic an event like this had to happen for us to learn of his selflessness, but I have no doubts he would have gone to the top in life.
I hope his family can manage a smile on his funeral, because he's done them so proud.

This not something you have to apologize for.
I never post on reddit, but I need to see if anyone would want to work with me on doing something for this brave young man and his family. I don’t have much to offer monetarily, but I do have a couple of my patches around still.
It sounds like he was on the military track or at least had an interest in it, if a bunch of us could get a contact in FL and send our patches there, I don’t know.... we could find a way to get them to his family or have them presented to his family at his funeral. Some way to show his family that their country, and it’s current and former service members know how heroically their son lived, and died. That our country lost one of its sons and will forever be the poorer for it.
Let me follow up with my POC.
