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.
