As the procession headed west on National Avenue through Brazil onto State Road 340 to Clearview Cemetery, residents lined the street to pay final respects to the soldier.
The amount of people on National Avenue touched Indiana National Guard Adjutant General R. Martin Umbarger.
"It's an honor to be a part of this," Umbarger said. "There is a lot of patriotism in this community. It really touches your heart ... so many people paying their respect.
"Spc. Fields deserves something like this. This is very fulfilling. It's a sad day for us, but it's our honor and duty to be here. We will never forget Arronn."
Services -- which were handled by Moore Funeral Home -- took place at the Brazil Church of the Nazarene.
Pastor Gary Bechtel opened the service.
Bechtel told those in attendance there were some things in life that are just hard to understand.
"We're probably not supposed to understand everything," Bechtel said. "We need to hold on to faith."
Bechtel said the anchor in life is faith.
He also discussed knowing Spc. Fields as a child.
"If you knew Arronn, you knew he was unique," Bechtel said. "They say variety is the spice of life.
"I know the last two weeks have been hard ... but we need to place our faith in God."
Umbarger also spoke at the service.
While he said he did not know Spc. Fields, he had come to know him through family and friends in the past two weeks.
"Arronn was a great man," Umbarger said. "Spc. Fields was a hero in every sense of the word."
Gov. Mitch Daniels was also in attendance at the services and funeral. While speaking to the audience at the church, he called Spc. Fields a person of "great character."
Daniels said he had heard Spc. Fields was interested in teaching history someday.
"Now, he is a part of history," Daniels said. "Thank God for people like Arronn Fields."
Bee Ridge Church Pastor Jeff Bridgewater and Nazarene church member Sam Glover also performed songs during the service.
The Indiana National Guard also presented Spc. Fields' family with the various awards he earned while in service.
