Military Service Wednesday to Honor Fallen Nebraska Soldier

A formal military service to honor a Nebraska native killed in Iraq is planned for Wednesday in North Platte. The widow of Marine Captain Travis Ford  says her late husband will be remembered in a funeral at the Berean Fundamental Church Wednesday. He'll be buried with full military honors at Fort McPherson Cemetary near Maxwell. 30-year-old Ford was killed April fifth in a helicopter crash about 30 miles southeast of Baghdad.

A private memorial service for Ford was held Thursday at Camp Pendleton, California, where he was stationed.
