Motorcycles accompany fallen Marine to Va. home

STAFFORD, Va. (AP) - The body of a Marine killed one week ago in Afghanistan is coming home to Virginia amid a procession of motorcyclists.

Staff Sgt. David H. Stewart died as a result of what the Pentagon calls a hostile incident in Helmand Province.

The procession of motorcyclists is made up of current and former police, fire and rescue workers and military members.

The Free Lance-Star reports that the 34-year-old's body will be transported from Dover Air Force Base on Friday to Stafford County. A funeral is Tuesday at the Marine Corps Base Quantico chapel.

The Stafford County man deployed three times to Iraq and twice to Afghanistan.

He is survived by his wife and two children.
