Soldier's funeral held at alma mater

SHEPHERDSVILLE — More than 100 people gathered for a funeral of a Kentucky soldier killed in Iraq.

The funeral Sunday for Army Staff Sgt. Gary Lee Woods of Lebanon Junction was held at Bullitt Central High School, his alma mater.

The 24-year-old soldier's body had been escorted from Fort Knox to a funeral home in Shepherdsville on Thursday.

The Pentagon said Woods and four other soldiers were killed April 10 when a suicide bomber detonated a ton of explosives near a police headquarters in the northern city of Mosul.
