Albany -- A former Lee County man, killed in Iraq, will be laid to rest Thursday at Arlington National Cemetery. Marine Sgt. Peter Woodall was killed April 27 in Iraq.
Albany business owner Wright Woodall looks at the numerous news stories about the death of his nephew, 25-year-old Marine Sgt. Peter Woodall. Woodall was killed April 27th in Al Anbar Province, Iraq when an explosives device he was defusing went off.
Wright Woodall described his fallen nephew as a born soldier. "He was pretty gung ho, you know. He was patriotic, loved his service, always wanted to be in the military. I know when he was a kid he used to dress up in fatigues. You know he was just a gung ho kind of guy. So I'm not surprised he would get in the military. I am surprised that he would get involved with explosives," said Wright Woodall.
This was not Sgt. Woodall's first tour in Iraq. The former Lee Countian received nine decorations including the Purple Heart.
"Fun loving guy, great family guy. You know just happy go lucky. Loved what he did, loved life. He had a ball," said Woodall.
Sgt. Woodall re-enlisted in 2004 and served with the Explosive Ordinance Disposal Company. He was stationed at Camp LeJeune, North Carolina.
