PALM HARBOR (FOX 13) -

A local fallen soldier was honored this weekend at a special event in Palm Harbor.

A color guard from MacDill Air Force Base presented an American flag to St. Petersburg Assistant Police Chief Cedric Gordon, whose daughter, Brittany, was killed last month while serving in Afghanistan.

"This is the first time something like this has impacted my life, changed my life, and I'm going to do everything in my power the rest of my life to make sure I do everything possible to support veterans all over this country," Cedric Gordon said at the Ladies PGA Legends Tour Championship.

Gordon was the Bay area's first female soldier killed in combat in Iraq or Afghanistan.
