(KSL News) A Utah soldier killed in Iraq will be laid to rest today.

Eighteen-year-old Eric Sieger of Layton died earlier in the month from wounds he suffered when his Bradley Fighting Vehicle rolled over in Buritz, Iraq. The crash is still under investigation.

When we spoke with Sieger's parents last Sunday, they told us Eric always wanted to be in the military and had what it took to be a good soldier.
