A local Korean War veteran will be laid to rest Tuesday.
Jerry Hedges flew with honor flight and even went skydiving with some of his fellow vets last August.
Hedges died earlier this month from complications associated with pneumonia and heart failure.
Services for Jerry Hedges are at 10 a.m. Tuesday at Christ the King Church on Bedford Way in Oildale.
Hedges will be buried at Bakersfield National Cemetery in Arvin.
His family asks in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the California Living Museum, a local youth sports organization, or a charity of your choice.
