Funeral services have been announced for former Missouri congressman Ike Skelton.
The funeral is set for 2 p.m. Monday on the campus of Wentworth Military Academy in Lexington. A burial service with military rites is scheduled for later that day at a Lexington cemetery.
Skelton died this past Monday of complications from pneumonia at a hospital in Virginia. He was 81.
Columbia came together on Saturday to remember a fallen soldier. A radical protest group had said it would be in town for the funeral, but it was overshadowed. The event was much more than a response to a protest.
The Patriot Guard placed flags around First Baptist Church on Broadway in downtown Columbia in preparation for the funeral of Spc. Sterling Wyatt.
Wyatt died July 11 while on duty in Afghanistan. Groups of supporters lined the streets of Columbia Thursday during a procession from Columbia Regional Airport to Wyatt's home.
