Editor's Note: This article has been updated to reflect the soldier pictured, Stephen Perez, was not killed in combat, but, rather was the victim of a homicide in the Theater District on April 28.
Today's photo comes from Sen. Scott Brown's Wednesday visit to Bunker Hill Community College. Brown posed for a photo with student veterans who held up a photo of one of their own who died recently under tragic circumstances.
Stephen Perez, 22, was a Revere native and a student at BHCC, who survived stints in Afghanistan and Iraq, only to tragically lose his life last week outside a Boston nightclub. No arrests have been made in connection with the killing yet, and the investigation remains ongoing.
