TULSA, Okla. (AP) A memorial service is set for a U.S. Army solider from Tulsa who died in a roadside bombing in Iraq.

The Tulsa World reports the service for 20-year-old Specialist Dylan J. Johnson will be held Wednesday at Kirk of the Hills Presbyterian Church in Tulsa. Johnson's burial at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia is pending.

The U.S. Department of Defense says he and 25-year-old Staff Sergeant Russell Proctor of Oroville, California died Sunday in the Diyala Province northeast of Baghdad.

Both soldiers were assigned to the 2nd Brigade Combat Team of the 1st Cavalry Division at Fort Hood, Texas.

Johnson attended high school in Jenks and entered active-duty service in August 2009.
