What justice will Uriah the Hittite ever receive?

I feel so sad for poor Uriah the Hittite. He showed great faith, great empathy toward his fellow soldiers in that he would not leave them to go to his own home to eat, drink and have relations with his wife while on leave. He, in verse 11, even told David point blank that with all of the sacrifices of his brethren in arms, he could not even consider leaving them for the free gift David was offering him of going after a moment of pleasure. We all know that David was forgiven, and he even kept Bathsheba for his own after Uriah's death. Is there any thought that Uriah will also be found worthy of the Kingdom of God?

2 Samuel 11:2 - 27

NKJV - 2 Then it happened one evening that David arose from his bed and walked on the roof of the king's house. And from the roof he saw a woman bathing, and the woman was very beautiful to behold. 3 So David sent and inquired about the woman. And someone said, " Is this not Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?
