CONCORD - The body of deceased Navy SEAL William "Blake" Marston returned to Concord on Thursday night and Gov. Maggie Hassan has ordered all flags be lowered to half-mast in Marston's name.
Using their trucks, firefighters hoisted a large American flag over the road on Church Street for Marston's body to be transported under on its way to Bennett Funeral Home.
Calling hours for Marston are set to take place from 3 to 7 p.m. at Bennett Funeral Home on Friday and a celebration of his life will be held at the Bedford Presbyterian Church in Bedford, NH at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday.
Marston will ultimately be laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetary in Arlington, Va.
"William Blake Marston's unyielding commitment to serving his fellow citizens, his state and his country demonstrated the very best of the strength and resilience that define the Granite State. Though there is nothing that we can do to ease the pain of his loss, Tom and I join all Granite Staters in coming together to do everything that we can to support Blake's family, loved ones and community," Hassan said in a statement.
