KILLEEN -- One of the soldiers who died in the Fort Hood Training accident two weeks ago has been laid to rest.

Staff sergeant Miguel Colon Vazquez was buried at the Texas State Veterans Cemetery Friday in Killeen.

The accident took nine soldier's lives when their vehicle was swept away in floodwaters.

Colon-Vazquez, had a 13-year career with the Army and served several tours in Afghanistan and Iraq.

"He'd give his shirt off his back, I've seen him do it he give his last couple of dollars in his wallet to a homeless veteran. He loved his family. He loved everybody he met. He never made enemies and he was just a good honest man," said Perrin Gori, friend of Colon-Vasquez.

Colon-Vazquez was just 38-years-old.
