Marine Cpl. Daegan Page recalled as hero who died while helping others

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A Marine killed last month in Afghanistan was remembered at his funeral Friday as a hero who died while trying to help others.

The Rev. Suzanne Howe recalled Bible scripture in describing the actions of Marine Cpl. Daegan Page, who was one of 13 U.S. service members killed Aug. 26 in a suicide bombing at the Kabul airport. The blast also killed at least 169 Afghans and came as people were desperately trying to board planes to leave amid the Taliban takeover of the country.
