Tribute to fallen soldier held at Amity graduation

It was a bittersweet evening for the graduating class of Amity Regional High School last night.

They held a tribute for 20-year-old Pfc. Eric Soufrine, who was killed last week while fighting in Afghanistan.

It was just two years ago that Soufrine received his diploma from Amity and enlisted in the Army.

Soufrine's parents attended the ceremony.

Friends say both his girlfriend and cousin were part of this year's graduating class.
