Staff Sergeant Randall Lee Lewis drowned last weekend while trying to save William Simmons' 10-year-old son's life. Simmons says Lewis paid a price which he can never repay.
"He would have did that for anybody," Simmons says. "I would have done that. It just happened to be my son."
Soldiers had a chance to say goodbye to Lewis at a memorial service at Fort Bragg's Faith Chapel.
Funeral services will be held Saturday at Highway Holiness Church of Deliverance.
