Army PFC Shawn Falter of Homer followed three brothers to serve his country.
He was class of 1999 from Homer High School.
Friday, January 20, 2017, will mark ten years since Falter and three of his fellow soldiers were killed after being ambushed in Karbala, Iraq.
A friend from Falter’s youth, Scott Heath, is organizing an anniversary memorial for noon Friday at Glenwood Cemetery in Homer.
The tribute will continue at the Homer American Legion.
A friend from Falter’s childhood, Scott Heath, Sr., is among those organizing the tribute and he requests if anyone wants to attend the luncheon at the American Legion, please contact him so he can pass along a head count.
