 Died of injuries suffered from a non-combat related incident.

A Vidor soldier died in Iraq Thursday, August 16, 2007, hours after calling to wish her younger sister a happy birthday and just weeks shy of being promoted to a U.S. Army sergeant, her uncle said. 

U.S. Army Spc. Kamisha Jane Block, 20, a 2005 graduate of Vidor High School, served as a military police officer in an area north of Baghdad, John Stuckey, Block's uncle, said Saturday. 

Stuckey said military officials notified her mother, Jane, Friday evening. 

"She was a wonderful person, and we were proud of what she was doing," Stuckey said. "She did a good job, and she was really going forward." 

Block's body will arrive at Southeast Texas Regional Airport on Tuesday, August 21. 

A procession from the airport to Memorial Funeral Home in Vidor is scheduled between noon and 12:30 p.m. 

The route will take U.S. 69 to Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway in Beaumont, to the Vidor exit on Interstate 10, then north on Main to Farm Market 1132 and right onto Texas 12 to Memorial Funeral Home. 

Funeral services are scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday, August 23, at Eastgate United Pentecostal Church in Vidor followed by burial at Del-Rose Cemetery, Memorial Funeral Home director Derrick Bolt said. 

Visitation will be at the church at 6pm Wednesday, August 22, Bolt said.
