Public encouraged to attend procession to honor fallen Columbus soldier

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A town in Indiana is hoping for a big turnout to honor a fallen soldier.

Army Sergeant Jonathan Hunter, age 23, is one of two service members killed in a suicide bombing earlier this month in Afghanistan.

The public is being encouraged to line a procession route through his hometown of Columbus, Indiana. Hunter's body is expected to arrive Tuesday morning on a military aircraft at the Columbus Municipal Airport. The nearly five-mile-procession starts from there at 11 a.m.

Hunter's funeral is set for 2 p.m. Saturday at Columbus East High School where he graduated.
