The father of a Fort Carson, Colo., soldier killed in Iraq will be aboard the plane carrying his body home to Sacramento.

Sgt. Michael Kyle Clark died Oct. 7 from wounds he suffered from small-arms fire in Mosul, the military said.

His father, 51-year-old Bradley Clark, works for a charter aircraft company that contracts with the Defense Department to carry the bodies of slain military personnel home from the military mortuary in Dover, Del.

Bradley Clark says he'll be on the plane with the body of his 24-year-old son. A funeral is planned Sunday.

The elder Clark says he's "sad but proud" of his son's service.

Michael Clark was on his second tour of duty in Iraq and had received two Army Commendation Medals and other decorations.
