COLUMBIA, Tenn. (AP) - A funeral procession for a Marine from Tennessee killed in Afghanistan is set for Monday.

Lance Cpl. Andrew Carpenter's funeral will be at 2 p.m. Monday at Heritage Funeral Home in Columbia.

Jim Cain, vice president of community relations for Heritage Funeral Home, told The Columbia Daily Herald the route of the procession will give the public an opportunity to show its support for the military by lining the roadside and waving flags.

Carpenter died Feb. 19, five days after suffering a gunshot wound to the neck while on patrol in Helmand province, Afghanistan.

The procession, which is expected to leave the funeral home about 3 p.m. Monday, will travel south on U.S. Highway 31 through Columbia, turn right on West 7th Street and then proceed on Trotwood Avenue toward Polk Memorial Gardens.
