LITTLE FALLS (AP) - Friends and family will gather Sunday and Monday to remember a Little Falls Marine who was killed in Iraq.
A wake for Corporal Anthony McElveen was planned for Sunday afternoon at Shelley Funeral Chapel in Little Falls. McElveen's funeral will be held at 10 a.m. Monday at the Camp Ripley Funeral Chapel.
McElveen's parents have invited the public to both services.
McElveen and nine other Marines died when an explosion was set off as the troops were leaving a promotion ceremony in an abandoned flour mill.
McElveen, 20, had been assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 1st Marine Division based at Twentynine Palms, Calif. He was attached to the 2nd Marine Division from Camp Lejeune, N.C., when he died.
