PALM CITY, FL (WFLX) - Mourners gather Wednesday morning to remember a local Marine who died in combat.
Lance Cpl. Justin Wilson, 24, was remembered during three viewings over two days for being a wonderful son, newlywed and hero. The funeral is Wednesday at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Palm City.
"We are a family of Marines. Their loss is also our loss. Whatever they are going through, we understand," said Lou Calleja with the Marine Corps League at a viewing Tuesday.
Wilson was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan March 22 during a foot patrol. His body came home Sunday by a charter jet.
