WASECA, Minn. (AP) - A funeral service will be held Monday for the young Marine from Waseca killed while serving in Afghanistan.

Visitation for 20-year-old Lance Cpl. Caleb Erickson at Grace Lutheran Church in Waseca is Sunday. KSTP-TV (https://bit.ly/1dyQlIg ) says the funeral is Monday at 10:30 a.m.

A funeral procession for Erickson is scheduled to start from Owatonna Degner Regional Airport shortly after 3 p.m. Saturday.
