Post More about LCPL Bruce Ferrell

According to the Department of Defense, Ferrell, 21, of Perdido, Ala. died Aug. 10 while supporting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan.
Lance Cpl. Bruce "Bubba" Ferrell Jr. will return home Sunday for the last time when the body of the Perdido Marine is brought back to Baldwin County after he died while on patrol in Afghanistan.

Ferrell, 21, died Monday during combat operations in Helmand province west of Kandahar, according to a Marine Corps statement. He was on a foot patrol with a group of Marines when he triggered an improvised explosive device, or IED, and was killed, according to his father, Bruce Ferrell Sr.

Ferrell's body will arrive at the Mobile Airport on Sunday morning and be taken to the John F. Rhodes Civic Center in Bay Minette where local veterans groups and residents are planning to turn out to commemorate the 2006 Baldwin County High School graduate. Visitation will be from 2 to 8 p.m. at the Civic Center. The funeral will be at the center at 2 p.m. Monday followed by burial at Bryars-McGill Cemetery in north Baldwin County.
