HINGHAM, Mass. » Officials in a Massachusetts town are asking the community to participate in a silent show of support for the family of a Marine who died after two helicopters crashed off Hawaii.
The Patriot Ledger reports the family of U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Christopher Orlando was scheduled to arrive at Logan Airport from Hawaii Tuesday night. State police were to escort them to Hingham.
Orlando and 11 other Marines were in two helicopters that crashed Jan. 14 off the Hawaiian island of Oahu. They were officially considered deceased after a five-day search.
Hingham Police Sgt. Steven Dearth says people are encouraged to stand along the Main Street route where the family will be traveling.
He says those along the route should remain silent as a sign of respect.
Services for another Marine killed in the crash will be held Saturday in Oregon.
The Statesman Journal reports that the family of Lance Cpl. Ty Hart will hold a memorial service for him on Saturday at Stayton High School.
Hart was a Stayton graduate and a former student-athlete.
Gov. Kate Brown ordered all flags at public institutions to be flown at half-staff on the day of Hart’s memorial service.
The public is invited to attend the service.
