Funeral held for Bartlesville soldier killed in Iraq

Updated:
A Bartlesville family said goodbye a soldier Monday afternoon. Specialist Adam Brewer was killed two weeks ago in Iraq. His death came just weeks before he was to come home.

Jeff Brewer says his son Adam joined the Army because he was looking for adventure. Soon after Adam graduated from Bartlesville High School in 2001, he signed up.

Adam's father says his son always had a sense of humor, even doing impersonation of Arnold Schwarzenegger for laughs. Adam's mother said he was planning on joining the police force when he got out of the Army.

Jeff Brewer says the Army helped mold his son into a man. "He was tenderhearted. He was just a really good man. He went in as a boy and came out a soldier."

Last month, Specialist Brewer was killed in Taji, Iraq. While he was on foot patrol, an improvised explosive device detonated and killed him. Brewer was just weeks from coming home from his second tour of duty in Iraq. He was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment out of Fort Hood, Texas.
