A memorial service was held at Fort Carson on Wednesday for a fallen soldier.

Staff Sergeant Chad Barrett died last month in a non-combat related incident. He was an 11-year Army veteran on his third tour in Iraq.

"He loved nothing more than to serve his country," said Staff Sergeant Brian Schintgen.

Staff Sergeant Barrett was assigned to the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, Fourth Infantry Division.

He was buried at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

He is survived by his wife.
