An Indiana soldier killed in Afghanistan will be remembered this weekend at a memorial service in Lafayette.

Army Sgt. Kyle Osborn died Sept. 13 from wounds he suffered when insurgents attacked his unit in Muger, Afghanistan.

The 26-year-old Osborn was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment at Camp Ederle in Vicenza, Italy.

The Journal & Courier and WLFI report that Saturday's public memorial service will begin at 5 p.m. in McCutcheon High School's gymnasium. Osborn was a 2005 McCutcheon graduate.

A private funeral service is planned for the family.

Osborn's widow, Maggie Osborn, has said her husband will be buried in Clarks Hill cemetery next to his grandfather.
