FORT WORTH - The first person from Tarrant County to die in Operation Desert Storm will be buried Tuesday at Greenwood Cemetery with full military honors.

The funeral for Marine Capt. David "Chip" Herr, who was killed in a helicopter crash in Saudi Arabia over the weekend, is scheduled for 4 p.m. Tuesday at First Presbyterian Church.

Burial will follow at Greenwood Cemetery; the military honors will include a Marine Corps color guard and a 21-gun salute, family members said.

In addition, some Marines from Camp Pendleton in Oceanside, Calif., where the Fort Worth native was stationed, will attend, said Herr's mother, Connie Herr.

David Herr, 28, a helicopter pilot, was killed along with three other crew members when his UH-1 Huey helicopter crashed in eastern Saudi Arabia. The crash also killed Cpl. Albert G. Haddad Jr. of Lewisville.
