COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Funeral services have been set in Texas for a battlefield surveillance unit leader killed by a fellow soldier at Fort Bragg in North Carolina.

The funeral for Lt. Col. Roy Tisdale is set for Thursday in College Station. The Texas A&M graduate will then be buried in the Aggie Field of Honor, an area of a College Station cemetery for Aggies and their supporters.

Tisdale was fatally wounded last week when Spc. Ricky G. Elder of Kansas shot him and another soldier, who survived. Elder then shot himself and later died.

Forty-two-year-old Tisdale had served in both Iaq and Afghanistan.

His mother, Linda Tisdale, tells Bryan-College Station television station KBTX that with all of his deployments, she never expected something to happen to him in the U.S.
