Daleville Soldier To Be Buried Saturday
(2007-09-27)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Funeral services for an Alabama soldier killed in Iraq will be held Saturday morning in Enterprise.

U.S. Army Sgt. Eddie Jeffers, 23, of Daleville was killed when the vehicle he was riding in overturned in Ramadi on Sept. 19. The Department of Defense is investigating what caused it to overturn.

Jeffers, who graduated from Daleville High School in 2002, is survived by his wife, Stephanie Jeffers.

Visitation will be held Saturday at 10 a.m. at Sorrells Funeral Home in Enterprise, with the funeral service at 11 a.m. Burial with full military honors will follow at Memorial Gardens in Daleville.

Tina Kelly, Jeffers' mother, said the service will be open to the public.

"I want any and everyone who knew my son to come for the celebration," Kelly said. "That's what he'd have us do and that's what we're doing."

Jeffers was assigned to 1st Battalion, 9th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division based at Fort Carson, Colo. A memorial ceremony will be held later in Colorado.
