PETERBOROUGH, N.H. (AP) - The body of a Marine killed in Afghanistan has been returned to New Hampshire.

The remains of Lance Cpl. Brandon Garabrant of Greenfield arrived in Manchester Saturday morning.

Police and fire officials escorted the casket to a funeral home in Peterborough while volunteers lined the procession route, holding signs showing their support.

Garabrant is one of three Marines killed June 20 in what the military described as a "hostile incident" in Helmand province.

Calling hours will be held Thursday at ConVal High School and a memorial service is planned for next Saturday, July 5, at the school.
