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."
