Family and friends remember a fallen Oklahoma soldier on Wednesday. 

26-year old Army Staff Sergeant Chris Hake and 3 other soldiers were killed March 23rd in Baghdad.  About a thousand people including Governor Brad Henry gathered in Enid on Wednesday and lined the streets to say goodbye. 

The pastor reminded everyone that they walk free thanks to Hake's service to his country. 

There were some protesters outside the church who demonstrated, but it was mostly peaceful. 

Hake will be buried next week at Arlington National Cemetery outside of Washington, D.C.
