Hundreds of people gathered around the Russellville square to honor Cpl. Josh Moore.
The square was filled with red, white and blue as Logan County, Ky., residents remembered their fallen hero.
Many waved flags and gathered to watch the funeral procession.
Patsy Watson and her granddaughter have several family members in the service. They attended to support Josh's family through this difficult time.
"I just really feel for the family and pray for them to get through it," said Watson.
Governor Ernie Fletcher has directed flags at all state office buildings to be lowered at half-staff until sunset on June 11, 2007.
