Andrew Velez Buried With Full Military Honors

A Lubbock family is now focused on healing after laying their fallen soldier in his final resting place. On Friday, Army Specialist Andrew Velez was buried next to his older brother, Freddy, at Resthaven Memorial Park.

They are the only brothers, so far, who have died during the War on Terror. Freddy died two years ago, in Iraq, and Andrew died last week in Afghanistan. Hundreds gathered to support the Velez family and pay their final respects to Andrew.

NewsChannel 11 Videojournalists Ruben Villarreal and Samuel Ortega take us through the ceremony.
