A soldier killed in Afghanistan has returned home for the last time. The body of 20-year-old Specialist Chris Drake arrived this morning at the Hammond airport.
Dozens of people lined the road as a procession took his remains from the airport to a funeral home in Livingston Parish. Services will be held next week for the Tickfaw native.
Drake died last Sunday. He was a gunner on a vehicle hit by a rocket-propelled grenade.
