COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - As members of a unit that lost 11 Marines in a roadside bomb blast in Iraq gather for a reunion a decade later, veterans groups and Ohio residents are being asked to line up along part of the route they’ll take to a private memorial service.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1J1CMwl ) report buses carrying Marines from Lima Company and the families of the fallen will leave the Polaris Hilton in Columbus Saturday, travel south on Interstate 270 and exit at Alum Creek Drive.

Once there, they will make their way under official escort to the U.S. Naval and Marine Corps Reserve Center for a private memorial service.

A Lima Company traveling memorial featuring life-size paintings and memorabilia honoring each of the fallen will be on display Saturday at the Polaris Hilton.
