A U.S. Navy SEAL killed in Iraq will be buried at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery in San Diego.

SEALs spokeswoman Lt. Beth Teach says the body of Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Charles Keating IV will be laid to rest Friday after a private funeral in Coronado, California, with his family.

Teach says a public procession to honor Keating will also take place Friday in Coronado, where Keating's SEAL Team 1 is based.

On Thursday, Naval Special Warfare will hold a private memorial service at Tidelands Park in Coronado for family, friends, and members of SEAL Team 1.

Keating was shot and killed May 3 during a gunbattle involving Islamic State fighters. He's the third U.S. service member to be killed in Iraq since U.S. forces returned there in 2014.
