A North Carolina church will hold a memorial service for a fighter pilot killed in Afghanistan.
Captain Mark McDowell died when his F-15E Strike Eagle crashed in eastern Afghanistan in July.
A memorial service was held Saturday afternoon at the First Baptist Church in Belmont.
McDowell was assigned to the 336th Fighter Squadron at Seymour
Johnson Air Force Base.
The squadron's F-15E Strike Eagle jets and about 300 personnel, including air and ground crews, deployed from the Goldsboro base in April for a four-month tour of duty.
