ARLINGTON, Va. — A soldier who was raised in Palm Beach County and died in a suicide bombing in Syria earlier this year was laid to rest on Tuesday.

The body of Army Chief Warrant Officer Jonathan Farmer was interred at Arlington National Ceremony in Virginia.

The 37-year-old earned a Purple Heart and three Bronze Star medals and served six combat tours overseas. He leaves behind a wife and children.

Farmer was honored in February during a private ceremony at Palm Beach International Airport when his body was returned home to South Florida.

Last month, U.S. forces captured the ISIS suspects allegedly involved in the attack that killed Farmer.
