Remains of fallen Marine returning to Omaha Friday

The body of a fallen Omaha soldier is scheduled to return home this Friday.

23-year-old Marine Cpl. Daegan Page was one of 13 members of the military killed in a bombing at the Kabul airport on August 26, during the final days of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan.

According to a family Facebook post, the plane carrying the Marine's remains is expected to arrive at Eppley Airfield about 1:30 Friday afternoon.

The family is thanking people who plan to line the streets from the airport to the funeral home in southwest Omaha.

The family is also working to coordinate a public visitation for those who would like to pay their respects.

The funeral is set for Friday, September 17.

The Marine will be laid to rest at Omaha National Cemetery for veterans.
