The military brought the body of Joshua Holt back to Lubbock Tuesday afternoon. The Patriot Guard, a volunteer group of motorcyclists, escorted his body from the airport to Sanders Memorial Chapel. Services will be held there at 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon.
Holt was stationed at Fort Hood. A family friend says Holt, 26, was found dead last Monday in a hotel room near the base. Apparently he had been staying there while waiting for off-base housing.
Holt joined the army soon after graduating from Coronado High School in 2002. His older sister tells us Joshua was a tank mechanic and served two tours in Iraq.
It is still not known how Holt died, but an investigation is underway.
