Family and friends will have a chance to say goodbye Thursday to the National Guardsman who died from injuries he sustained in a helicopter crash at Texas A&M.
The funeral for Sergeant Charles Mitts, 43, will be held at the St. Ignatius of Loyola Church in Spring.
Mitts worked in public safety for more than 20 years. He served in Iraq and helped in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the space shuttle Columbia disaster.
The crash also claimed the life of Aggie Soldier Zac Cook who was assisting in an A&M Corps of Cadets training exercise.
