The funeral service for 21-year-old Lance Cpl. Squire “Skip” Wells is today at 2 p.m. at the First Baptist Church of Woodstock in Georgia. He was one of five servicemen who were fatally shot in attacks on military facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Mourners began paying their respects last week during different memorials across Georgia.
The Associate Press reports that Wells was remembered as a hardworking and an enthusiastic Marine who had been eager to enlist in the military.
He attended Georgia Southern University for one semester in the fall of 2013.
