Follow us on the escort route
OMAHA, Neb. (KLKN) – We are live in Omaha following the escort of Corporal Daegan Page’s remains being transported from Eppley Airfield to Braman Mortuary. The Marine was killed in a suicide attack in Kabul, Afghanistan.
His funeral is Friday, Sept. 17th at 10:00 a.m. at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Omaha.
The Page family is still coordinating a public visitation for those who wish to pay their respects. A website has been set up for information and updates.
Cpl. Page was raised in Red Oak, Iowa, and played hockey for Omaha Westside in the Omaha Hockey Club. He was also a longtime member of the Boy Scouts. After the Marines, Page planned on going to a local trade school and possibly becoming a lineman.
“Our hearts are broken, but we are thankful for the friends and family who are surrounding us at this time.”
His family says he was a genuinely happy guy. “Daegan always looked forward to coming home and hanging out with family and many buddies from Nebraska.”
