WHITEWRIGHT, TX -- A fallen soldier from Whitewright, Pfc. Christian Jake Chandler, will return home Thursday.

Chandler's mother tells News 12 that his body will arrive at the North Texas Regional Airport just after 11 A.M.

From NTRA, they will proceed down U.S. Highway 82 to Sherman High School, and then through Tom Bean, Whitewright, and finally to Bells.

Chandler was killed in action April 28 in Afghanistan after his unit was attacked by small arms fire in Logar province.

The Patriot Guard Riders and an Honor Guard attachment from Fort Hood will be there to escort Chandler and his family to the funeral home.

Jake's funeral is set for Saturday at 2 p.m. in Bells.
