SPOKESMAN.COM - Law enforcement in Spokane and North Idaho are joining the U.S. military in processions today to deliver to funeral homes the remains of two Coeur d'Alene soldiers killed in Iraq. A procession today around noon escorted the remains of Sgt. Nathan R. Beyers from Spokane International Airport to Hennessey-Smith Funeral Home on North Division Street in Spokane. Another, scheduled for around 1:30 p.m., will escort the remains of Army Spc. Nicholas W. Newby from the Coeur d'Alene Airport/Pappy Boyington Field to Yates Funeral Home on Fourth Street in Coeur d'Alene.

The Coeur d'Alene procession will pass Lake City High School, Newby's alma mater, which his family has suggested would be a good place for community members to gather if they wish to pay respects.

Newby and Beyers were killed July 7 when insurgents attacked their convoy with an improvised explosive device in Baghdad, the Defense Department reported. A third Coeur d'Alene soldier, Staff Sgt. Jason Rzepa, had both legs amputated below the knee due to injuries sustained in the attack, a news release from the Idaho Army National Guard said.

Rzepa was awarded a Purple Heart on July 8 while in an Iraqi military hospital. He has returned to the United States and is receiving medical care at Fort Sam Houston in Texas. Both Beyers and Newby will posthumously receive the Purple Heart and other medals, said Col. Tim Marsano, a spokesman for the Idaho Army National Guard. >>>CLICK HERE TO READ MORE FROM SPOKESMAN.COM
