The body of a local soldier killed in Afghanistan came home to Cherryville Monday morning.

Army specialist James Justice will be laid to rest Monday.

The 21-year-old was shot in the head in Afghanistan and passed away at a hospital in Germany on August 16.

Justice's body arrived around 9 a.m. at the Shelby airport. He will then be taken to the Harris Funeral Home in Kings Mountain during a procession on NC 150 in Gaston County.

This was Justice's first tour in Afghanistan after joining the Army at age 18. He attended Cherryville High School and received a degree from Gaston College before deploying overseas last month where he was initially stationed in Italy.

Justice leaves behind a wife and three stepchildren.
