Funeral services are Monday for a Texas A&M graduate killed in Iraq.

National Guard Captain Sean Lyerly was piloting a Black Hawk helicopter January 20 when it crashed northeast of Baghdad. All 12 soldiers on board died.

It's not clear what caused the Black Hawk to crash and the military is investigating.

Visitation and a vigil were held Sunday in Pflugerville.

A funeral mass is scheduled for Monday at noon at St. Elizabeth Catholic Church in Pflugerville.

Lyerly, 31, graduated from Texas A&M in 1998. He is survived by his wife and their three-year-old son.

Lyerly also has numerous family members, including his father, that live both in Bryan and Hearne.
