The memorial is set for 10 a.m. Monday at Rose State College Performing Arts Center for Staff Sgt. Daniel N. Fannin. Burial will be at 2 p.m. at Fort Gibson National Cemetery with full military honors.

Fannin was one of four men killed in the crash of a U.S. Air Force MC-12 on April 27 near Kandahar Airfield. The Defense Department is still investigating the cause of the crash. There were no reports of enemy activity in the area at the time.
