Private First Class Andrew Nelson was killed in Baghdad on Christmas day after a roadside bomb exploded near his vehicle. On Saturday, hundreds of mourners paid their last respects at First Baptist Church, while others lined U.S. 27 in a show of support.

Nelson was buried at Mount Rest Cemetary where roughly 500 flags were flown in his honor. He is survived by his wife Kristi.
