SUDBURY, Mass. — It was a final homecoming for a Massachusetts soldier who died in Afghanistan.

The body of Lt. Scott Milley, 23, of Sudbury was flown Dec. 9 to nearby Hanscom Air Force Base. His father, Steven Milley, told reporters his son has gone “to a place where there is only glory” and the family is holding onto that.

Service members and veterans were among those lining the motorcade route as the flag-draped coffin was taken to Milley’s hometown.

Milley died Nov. 30 when his patrol came under small-arms fire in Logar province.

A public wake was scheduled for Dec. 10 at Lincoln-Sudbury High School, where Milley graduated in 2005. His funeral service was scheduled to be held there Dec. 11.

Milley was a 2009 graduate of the University of New Hampshire.

SUDBURY, Mass. — Hundreds of mourners gathered to remember a Sudbury soldier who was killed in Afghanistan.

During the burial ceremony, Army Rangers yelled out the Ranger Creed and soldiers fired a three-volley salute.

At a service earlier at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School, Milley’s brother, Steve Milley Jr., called his brother “the best man I’ll ever know.”

Milley graduated from the high school in 2005 and was a hockey star there. He graduated from the University of New Hampshire in 2009.

Milley died Nov. 30 when his patrol came under small-arms fire in the Baraki Barak district of Afghanistan.
