East Texas soldier laid to rest

An East Texas soldier killed in Iraq was laid to rest Saturday.  The funeral for Private First Class Heath Pickard of Brushy Creek was held Saturday morning in Palestine.  Pickard was killed in a mortar attack last Thursday, exactly one month after going to Iraq.  Pickard, a 2006 Frankston High School graduate, leaves behind a wife and a four-month-old son.
