Body Of Michigan Soldier Brought Home

More than 100 people, many of them weeping or saluting, watched as a color guard delivered a flag-draped casket containing the remains of a Michigan soldier killed in Afghanistan to his hometown of Saginaw.

A motorcade of police, military, family and Patriot Guard motorcycles escorted U.S. Army Spc. DeAngelo B. Snow’s to a funeral home Saturday morning.

The 22-year-old Snow was killed Sept. 17 when insurgents attacked his vehicle with a rocket-propelled grenade in the Kandahar province.

Snow’s funeral is scheduled for 11 a.m. Tuesday at Wolverine State Baptist Headquarters in Saginaw. A military salute will take place after the ceremony at Forest Lawn Cemetery.

Visitation will be from 2 to 8 p.m. Monday at the Evans-Smith Funeral Home.
