HOUSTON—A soldier from La Porte who died in Afghanistan under mysterious circumstances returned home Thursday for a hero’s burial.

Surrounded by American flags, the body of Army specialist Jarrett Griemel arrived at noon at Ellington Field.

The 20-year-old graduate of La Porte High School was found in his barracks at Forward Operating Base Gardez in Afghanistan on June 3. His family tells us there were o obvious signs of injury, but he was found bleeding from his nose and ears. The Army hasn’t released yet how he died.

Griemel married his high school sweetheart just over a year ago and had only been in Afghanistan 3 months.

His funeral is Saturday in La Porte.

  • Internal bleeding? A blast from a explosion can kill you without leaving any damage to the outside of the body. If he was beaten to death sometimes bruising doesnt occur for sometime after the incident. A second autopsy should be done. The only other thing I could think of is he caught Ebola but I doubt that.

  • NO FU. You still need to remember this kid has family that are reading this. I will venture to guess you did absolutely NO time in war. If you did, you would not be saying these things. You probably weren't even in the military. So FU.
