Idaho Soldier’s Funeral This Weekend

BONNERS FERRY, Idaho (AP) — Officials with the U.S. Army say the remains of a soldier slain in Afghanistan will be returned home to northern Idaho on Friday. Twenty-two-year-old Spc. Ethan J. Martin was killed by enemy fire on Aug. 7. A news release from the Army says Martin’s remains will arrive at the Sandpoint Airport at 10 a.m. Friday, and the Army will hold a ceremony there to transfer the remains to Martin’s family. A funeral for Martin will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday at Bonners Ferry High School, with interment to follow at Paradise Valley Cemetery. The funeral and interment are open to the public. Martin joined the Army in 2009. He was based in Alaska’s Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, and his 3,500-soldier brigade went to Afghanistan in December.
