Funeral services set for soldier who died in training

DADE CITY — Arrangements have been made for Norman "Ehren" Murburg III, the 20-year-old Green Beret candidate stationed at Fort Bragg, N.C., who died earlier this week during a field training exam in which soldiers are left in the woods with only a map and compass with the mission of finding targeted areas.

He was reported missing at midday Monday when he didn't arrive at a checkpoint. Nearly 500 soldiers searched for him that day and night. His body was found Tuesday morning. The Army is investigating. Murburg had not used his emergency equipment and his water canteens were full.

He was a 2005 graduate of Pasco High School and enlisted in the Army after a year of studying at the University of Florida.

Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Hodges Funeral Home, 11441 U.S. 301 in Dade City. Services will be at 11 a.m. Thursday at St. Anthony's Catholic Church, 32832 Massachusetts Ave. in San Antonio. Burial will follow at the Florida National Cemetery, 6502 SW 102nd Ave. in Bushnell. Murburg is survived by his mother, Karen Murburg of Clearwater; and his father, Michael Murburg, and sister, Erica Murburg, both of Dade City.
