A Marine whose request to wear his uniform at his high school graduation last year was refused by school officials has been killed in Afghanistan.

Brandon Garabrant, 19, was one of three Marines killed by a roadside bomb this week, reported.

Garabrant gained fame last year when he asked to wear his dress blues to his graduation from ConVal Regional High School. But the school's principal, citing regulation, told him he had to wear the traditional cap and gown.

His family was notified of his death on Friday, reported.

On Friday, ConVal Regional High School principal Brian Pickering said the school community was "shocked and deeply saddened" to hear of his passing.

"We are incredibly grateful for his service to our country,” he said.

Members of the Temple Volunteer Fire Department, where Garabrant was a member, gathered Friday to lower the flag outside the station to half-staff and say a prayer, reported.
