Locals gathered Sunday in Callaway County to remember Sgt. Talon Leach. The 27-year-old, who grew up in Fulton, was aboard the aircraft that crashed in Mississippi on July 10.
Family and friends attended a memorial service at North Callaway High School at 4 p.m. Gov. Eric Greitens spoke at the service. Then service attendees processed through Fulton, accompanied by members of the Missouri Highway Patrol and other law enforcement, fire trucks and dozens of Patriot Guard Riders.
Those honoring Leach stood in silence along both sides of North Bluff Street, many holding American flags.
Leach will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
