SANTA ANA, Calif. (Tribune News Service) — The flag-draped caskets of seven Marines and a sailor who died when their seafaring vehicle sank off the coast of Southern California headed to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware on Wednesday, Aug. 12.

In a final “honorable carry,” each casket was moved by a Marine or Navy pallbearer from a hearse to the awaiting plane during a private gathering at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego. The vehicles arrived at the flight line one by one. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/with-honor-ceremony-seven-marines-sailor-who-died-in-ocean-training-exercise-are-flown-to-dover-air-force-base-1.641114
