SHILOH, Il. (KMOV.com) -- Scott Air Force Base played host to a solemn ceremony Monday, honoring a local soldier killed in Afghanistan.

Many of the service members at Scott Air Force based turned out to give a strong show of support as the remains of PFC Tyler Iubelt were flown home.

Iubelt and three others died earlier this month when a suicide bomber got inside Bagram Airfield.

SAFB service members  lined the road and saluted as the hearse drove way with Iubelt’s family.

Iubelt was assigned to Fort Hood in Texas. His hometown was Tamaroa, Illinois.
