The home county of a fallen Navy Seal will gather Saturday evening to honor the service and sacrifice of Warfare Operator First Class Aaron Carson Vaughn.

Vaughn was among the elite Navy Seals onboard a Chinook helicopter shot down by insurgents in Afghanistan last week.

There will be a public memorial service to honor the Obion County native at 7 p.m. Saturday in the Obion County Central High School Gymnasium in Troy.

The service is expected to be about an hour long. Members of Vaughn's family will attend.

Vaughn is tentatively scheduled to be buried August 20 at Arlington National Cemetery.

The 30-year-old Navy Seal leaves behind a wife and two children.
