Colorado Casualty of War

Rippetoe is scheduled to be buried at a memorial at 8 a.m.

His sister says the family also plans a memorial service in Colorado, but details aren't set yet.

The 27-year-old Rippetoe of Arvada and two other soldiers died April 4 at a checkpoint outside of Baghdad when they approached a car after a pregnant woman stepped out of the vehicle and began screaming in fear.

The U.S. Central Command says the car exploded, killing the soldiers and the woman.
