A procession is scheduled for 4 p.m. Thursday for a soldier killed in a training exercise at Fort Hood, Texas. 
 
Zachary Nathaniel Fuller of Palmetto was killed June 2 with eight other U.S. Army soldiers when their truck was swept into a rushing creek swollen with rain water, causing the vehicle to overturn.
 
A procession for Fuller will begin after he arrives at Tampa International Airport about 3 p.m. It will go along I-275 and cross the Howard Frankland Bridge, where it will then take the U.S. 41 exit and then right onto Seventh Street West in Palmetto.
 
A visitation is scheduled from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday at Westside Funeral home at 204 Seventh St. W. in Palmetto. The funeral service will be held 1 p.m. Saturday at Bible Baptist Church at 1720 Sixth Ave. W. in Palmetto.
