CLAY COUNTY, Fla. -- An American flag flies high at Camp Blanding, as the community remembers Capt. Techari Czarnecki and Tech Sgt. David Stone of the Florida National Guard.

The two were killed this September.

They were trying to help the people inside of a disabled vehicle on I-10 as they were hit by another car.

They were on their way to Tallahassee for a training exercise.

Czarnecki and Stone were part of the civil support team, one of many units that came out to Friday's ceremony.

"It's an opportunity to memorialize them and for the unit to come together and say their goodbyes," said Lt. Col. James Evans.

Gov. Rick Scott also came out to honor Czarnecki and Stone.

"He's come out here and made a special effort to come and speak with the family," said Evans.

Evans described the ceremony as a sad time, but a time for healing.

"Two members lost in a short period of time, it's hard on all of us," said Evans.

Evans told Action News the team that the two were on in the National Guard was a tight-knit group.

It was made up of only 22 members.
