UNDATED -- The body of a Sapulpa soldier killed in Afghanistan returned home Friday. Sergeant Kirk Owen was killed last week while on patrol.
The 37-year-old father of two was on his second tour of duty. He was one of four soldiers killed in the deadliest week Oklahoma's National Guard has faced since the September 11th terror attacks.
His funeral will be Monday in Sapulpa.
The family is asking that instead of flowers donations be given to either Blue Star Moms or the youth ministry at First Baptist Church of Sapulpa.
