TUNICA, MS (WLBT) - Family and friends say good-bye to a Tunica soldier killed in the line of duty at a funeral service.
Army Private Second Class William Brandon Dawson was killed in action when a missle struck his convoy in Kabul, Afghanistan on September 24th.
The 20-year-old was deployed early in July.
Dawson's parents received their son's medals in recognition of his sacrifice. Dawson is the second member of the armed forces from north Mississippi to die in September. Marine Lance Corporal Joshua Ose was shot and killed less than three weeks ago.
