OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Two Army soldiers who lost their lives in war are being remembered as fathers, sons and husbands who will be greatly missed.

Friends and family of Chief Warrant Officer Travis Grogan gathered Thursday at First Baptist Church in Moore to say goodbye.

The 31-year-old Army helicopter pilot died November 27th when the airplane he was in crashed near Bamian, Afghanistan.

His love of swimming led him to a position in the Navy and he later became interested in flying. Grogan leaves behind a wife, two children and parents.

In Oklahoma City loved ones crowded into the Crooked Oak High School gymnasium to remember Carl -W- Lee.

Lee died November 28th when his unit came under small arms fire from enemy forces in Ramadi, Iraq.

Family members said the 23-year-old loved video games and spending time with his brothers.

Grogan was buried at Fort Sill National Cemetery, and Lee's body was taken to Sunnylane Cemetery for graveside services.
