A former high school valedictorian killed in Iraq is being remembered for his commitment to his country — and his determination to excel at everything he tried.
First Lt. Benjamin T. Britt, 24, of Wheeler, was killed Thursday by an improvised explosive device that detonated near his position.
He played in two state championship games as a tackle for the Wheeler High football team and was a first-team all-stater in 1998. He was valedictorian of his class and an Eagle Scout.
He attended the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
Britt graduated from high school in 1999, then attended Trinity University in San Antonio before transferring to West Point a year later.
