CHESTER - U.S. Army Spc. Charles Messer of Fort Lawn, a veteran of the war in Iraq, was laid to rest with full military honors at Chester Memorial Garden on a rain-soaked Sunday afternoon.
Messer, 20, died Dec. 22 when his car rolled in northeast El Paso near where he was stationed. He wasn't wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the vehicle.
Messer would have boarded a plane that same day to go home for the holidays.
Some of his fellow soldiers who served with him in Iraq came to the funeral.
