BRIGHAM CITY, Utah (AP) - A 25-year-old Army helicopter pilot killed in a crash in Afghanistan will be buried Monday at Brigham City Cemetery in northern Utah. Officials said CW2 Kirk Fuchigami Jr. was one of two Army pilots killed in the Nov. 20 crash while providing security for ground troops in eastern Logar Province outside of Kabul. Fuchigami was a native of Hawaii whose wife, McKenzie Norman, is from Utah. The Utah National Guard said Fuchigami's remains were scheduled to arrive Saturday at the Ogden-Hinkley Airport and then be transported to a mortuary in Brigham City. Funeral services are scheduled Monday morning, followed by burial services that will include full military honors and a military aircraft flyover.
