COLUMBIA - The First Baptist Church of Columbia will hold a funeral for fallen Columbia soldier Spc. Sterling Wyatt on Saturday July 21. The service will be held at 1 P.M. at the church on 1112 E. Broadway.
Wyatt was killed last Wednesday while serving in Afghanistan. His family was able to attend a fallen soldiers ceremony in Dover, Delaware last week.
The community banded together in support of the Wyatt family. People brought hundreds of flags, which they placed along both sides of the street on Shepard Boulevard and Audubon Drive to honor the soldier last Friday before the family returned from Delaware.
Along with Saturday's funeral service, visitation services are planned at First Baptist Church on Friday from 5 P.M. to 8 P.M.
