MERIDIAN -- Army Specialist Tom Murach was laid to rest at the Idaho State Veterans Cemetery on Monday afternoon.

His memorial and burial was open to the public.

The 22-year-old soldier from Meridian was killed alongside four other soldiers on May 4, 2013 in Afghanistan. The group was driving when a roadside bomb exploded.

Tom's brother Nick told KTVB Tom strongly believed in what he was doing in Afghanistan and was proud to be a part of it.

His memorial service was held at the Capital Christian Center in Meridian, and followed by the burial at the Idaho State Veterans Cemetery.
