Memorial Services for Sgt. Zachary McBride of Bend set
Memorial arrangements have been set for Sgt. Zachary McBride, a U.S. Army soldier who lost his life in Sinsil, Iraq on January 9, 2008 when he was struck with the blast from an improvised explosive device.

The Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, Jan. 19, at 1 p.m. at the Eastmont Church located at 62425 Eagle Road, Bend, Ore. As there is limited seating at the church the family has arranged for an Open Visitation at the Church on Friday from 2 - 5 p.m. and again from 6 - 8 p.m. This Visitation ceremony will allow the local community the opportunity to pay their respects as overcrowding will be an issue at Saturday's Memorial Service.

Interment is scheduled for 12 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 20 at Willamette National Cemetery. Full military honors will be performed by the Military Funeral Honors Team from the Oregon National Guard.

Media will be allowed to cover these events, however, we are looking for one station with pool capabilities to cover the service on Saturday due to the limited space. Interested media need to contact the Oregon Military Department Public Affairs Office, Kay Fristad @ 503-584-3917 to coordinate set up at the Church.
