Fallen Green Beret Sgt. Maj. James G. “Ryan” Sartor was honored at a candlelight vigil in Falcon Wednesday night.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — A fallen Green Beret was honored with a candlelight vigil Wednesday Night, after he was killed during combat in Afghanistan.

The Gazette reports that a crowd of more than 200 people stood outside a Falcon brewing company in honor of 40-year-old Sgt. Maj. James G. “Ryan” Sartor.

The Rev. Doug Brauner says the community came together for Sartor’s wife and three children to show their love and support, including members of a special forces motorcycle club.

Friends say Sartor was a leader and an example of what a man’s supposed to be like.

Sartor was from Teague, Texas and was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 10th Special Forces group in Fort Carson, Colorado before his death last weekend.
