Denham Springs turns out for USMC procession
DENHAM SPRINGS - People turned out along Range Avenue shortly after 6 p.m. on Wednesday to show respect for a fallen Marine from the area.
The community welcomed home 29-year-old USMC Sgt. Adam Kocrowski from Denham Springs, who was killed in a vehicle crash near Camp Lejeune, NC, where he was a combat instructor.
Staff Sgt. Kocrowski arrived at New Orleans Airport earlier on Wednesday and was escorted by local law enforcement and the Patriot Guard to Seal Funeral Home in Denham Springs as the community displayed support with waving American flags and holding candles for the Marine and his family.
The funeral is scheduled for Saturday, followed by a military burial.
