BRAWLEY, CA - The soldier from Brawley killed in a helicopter crash while serving in Afghanistan is being honored and remembered in his home town.

The Brawley community has come together and placed red, white, and blue ribbons along Main Street in memory of Captain Scott Pace.

The 39-year-old and First Lieutenant Matthew Fazzari of Walla Walla, Washington crashed after being hit by fire from insurgents last Wednesday.

Pace had been deployed two previous times to Iraq.

Both bodies were flown back on Friday to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware where they were based.
