The remains of a U.S. Marine from Temecula killed in Iraq during an Islamic State attack were returned to Riverside County Saturday.
The 27-year-old, Staff Sgt. Louis F. Cardin, was assigned to Battalion Landing Team, 2nd Battalion, 6th Marines. He was killed in Iraq in a rocket attack near Mahmour where eight other Marines were also injured.
USMC Life volunteer Kristina Hammock organized an effort to get civilians to line the street to honor the Marine as he made his way home.
Rest in peace young brave soldier. Your duty is done. Prayers to family and friends.
