Friends and family are saying goodbye to a Kentucky Marine who died in Iraq.
The visitation for 21 year old Lance Corporal John Thornsberry began Thursday morning at Little Rosa Regular Baptist Church at McDowell. The funeral is scheduled for Friday at eleven at the church.
Thornsberry and another marine were killed when their Humvee hit a roadside bomb.
The Floyd County native was only in Iraq for 26 days before his death.
Thornsberry leaves behind a wife and a two year old daughter.
