BISMARCK - The North Dakota National Guard rendered “Planeside Honors” Friday for Pvt. Karissa Morgen Ulmer.
Ulmer, 19, died on Sept. 27 in her sleep while attending Advanced Individual Training School at Fort Lee, Va.
“It brought tears to my eyes,” said Dorothy Ulmer, Karissa Ulmer’s grandmother. “You want that respect, and this to me shows that respect.”
Karissa Ulmer graduated this year from Sawyer as an honor student and left for training at Fort Lee in June.
The soldier was awarded the Army Achievement, Army Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Army Service Ribbon, and North Dakota Basic Training Ribbon.
