(FRANKFORT) - A memorial service is planned in the central Indiana hometown of a soldier who died from injuries he suffered in Afghanistan.

The service Tuesday at an American Legion hall in Frankfort will be on the one-year anniversary of when a sniper wounded Army Sgt. Jamie Jarboe.

Jarboe died March 21 at the age of 27 after enduring more than 100 surgeries for injuries that left him mostly paralyzed. He was stationed at Fort Riley in Kansas and his funeral was in Topeka.

Melissa Jarboe tells The Times of Frankfort that her husband had asked for a separate service in his hometown. She says she would like to hug all the Indiana veterans who supported him.

Jarboe enlisted in the military after graduating from Frankfort High School in 2003.
