Groups of supporters lined the streets of Columbia from the regional airport to the city’s downtown today, in honor of  fallen Army soldier Sterling Wyatt, a Columbia native who was killed July 11th while on patrol in Afghanistan.

Columbia citizens lined Stadium Boulevard and Broadway this morning with hanging heads and waving flags to greet the funeral procession carrying Wyatt's body from Columbia Regional Airport to the funeral home.
