A young Kentucky soldier killed in Afghanistan, is now back home.

The body of Private First Class Dustin Gross returned to Mount Sterling Monday.

People gathered to watch a procession on the bypass.

Gross was killed by a roadside bomb.

During the procession we met William Evans, a friend of Dustin's since childhood.

He says, " He was one of the best friends I could ask for. He always had my back. He always made sure I had what I needed. I never will forget him. Just so many years of good memories."

Visitation for Gross will be Wednesday from 5pm to 9pm at Montgomery County High School.

The funeral is Thursday morning at 11 at the school.
