The remains of a local soldier killed in combat in Afghanistan last week are scheduled to return to Fort Hood on Friday.

Fort Hood officials will conduct a dignified transfer ceremony in honor of Sgt. James Gregory Johnston, 24, at 11:45 a.m. Friday at the North Ramp located on Robert Gray Army Airfield, post officials said in a news release. The ceremony is not open to the public.
