Funeral arrangements are set for the Laredo Marine killed in the Afghanistan airport attack last week.
The body of Lance Corporal David Lee Espinoza is scheduled to arrive at the Laredo airport on Friday, Sept. 10.
A family-only viewing is set for Saturday, Sept. 11
Sunday's viewing will be open to the public from 8 a.m. to midnight.
A military procession and funeral will follow Monday.
The public is invited to line up along the procession route between Lyndon B. Johnson High School and the Laredo city cemetery.
“I would like to invite the community to join me in paying our respects to Lance Corporal David Lee Espinoza and his family," Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-Laredo) said in a statement. "The family requested that David be flown to his hometown of Laredo where he will arrive next Friday, September 10th, avoiding the possibility of additional travel from San Antonio. David gave the ultimate sacrifice to defend our rights of life and liberty—we must honor that sacrifice today and each day moving forward by putting community first, just like David would have done in our shoes.”
