CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A 31-year-old Navy SEAL from New Hampshire who died during a military parachute training exercise in Florida will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

A celebration of William “Blake” Marston’s life has been scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Saturday at the Bedford Presbyterian Church. Visiting hours will be held Friday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Bennett Funeral Home in Concord.

Marston died Saturday after landing on the grounds of an airport in DeLand, Florida.

Police said after he was found on the ground unconscious and with a broken leg, he was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. A witness told police that something flew off his parachute as he was in free fall between 40 to 60 feet above ground.
