Funeral services will be held Saturday for Pfc. James N. Diedrich, 20, son of Mr. and Mrs. Math Diedrich of R. 1, Hilbert, who was killed in Vietnam on Feb. 18 when a helicopter he was in was shot down north of Saigon.

The Rev. Mark Schumacher, pastor, will be celebrant of the 10:30 a.m. requiem Mass at St. Marys Catholic Church, Hilbert. Burial will be in the parish cemetery. Friends may call at the Kapitzke Funeral Home, Hilbert, after 3 p.m. Friday. A prayer service will be held at 7:30 and the parish rosary at 8 p.m. Friday at the funeral home.

Authorities said Diedrich was undergoing training as an aerial spotter for a mortar team with the First Air Cavalry Division. He had been in the Army six months and in Vietnam four weeks.

He was born June 14, 1949 at Fond du Lac, and graduated from Hilbert High School in 1967.
