OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - A public visitation for Cpl. Daegan Page will be held Sept. 16 from 5-8 p.m. at St. Paul Lutheran Church at 13271 Millard Avenue in Omaha.

Those who attend are asked to follow the posted signs and enter through Door A.

The Page family says his funeral is still planned for Sept. 17 at 10 a.m., also at the St. Paul Lutheran Church. The main sanctuary will be reserved for friends and family. Seating for the general public is very limited.

Nebraska and Iowa pay tribute to Cpl. Daegan Page

Cpl. Page was one of 13 service members killed in a suicide bombing last month near the Kabul Airport just days before the deadline to remove all U.S. troops from Afghanistan.

Page will be buried at the Omaha National Cemetery.

The Patriot Guard Riders announced it will participate in the services:

The Family of Marine Cpl. Daegan Page, 23, has requested the Patriot Guard Riders participate in his final journey home by providing Flag Lines at his Community Viewing on Thursday & his Funeral Service on Friday, both at St Paul’s Lutheran Church and at his Committal Shelter Service at the Omaha National Cemetery. We will also provide a five-man Missing Man formation following the Funeral Coach and will be assisted by the Omaha Police Department and other law enforcement agencies, in his official procession to the Omaha National Cemetery following his 10 am funeral Service on Friday, September 17, 2021.

Our Hero, Marine Daegan Page sacrificed his life helping others in Kabul, Afghanistan as two suicide bombers and gunmen attacked crowds attempting to access Kabul’s airport on Thursday, August 26, 2021.
