Spokane Remembers Local Soldier Killed

SPOKANE, WASH. - Since the beginning of the war in Afghanistan, more than two thousand American soldiers have been killed in action and Monday the Spokane community gathered to remember one of those fallen servicemen, Specialist Jarrod Lallier. Governor Gregoire ordered all flags be flown at half staff in remembrance of Lallier's life.

SPC. Lallier died June 18th when three men dressed in Afghan Police uniforms turned their guns on Lallier's unit. The soldier would have been 21 tomorrow.

This afternoon hundreds gathered inside Life Center Church. The Patriot Guard had more than 50 veterans outside holding American flags as people filed inside. There was also a 21 gun salute at the Fairmount Cemetery, the place SPC. Lallier was buried.

The ceremony brought together so many people that were important to him, family and friends, as well as strangers he didn't even know. They all came together to honor and remember this American hero. One of the most emotional moments of the service came when Jarrod's sister and little brother read a note that he had written, a note that would only be seen if he was killed in combat. It spoke to how much he loved his family and was grateful for their support. It talked about how even though he lived a short life he felt fulfilled and that he had accomplished a lot in those twenty years. Lallier later said he had no regrets.

Lallier was a graduate of Mead High School in 2010 and had been in Afghanistan since February.
