A small Wisconsin town is saying goodbye to a Marine killed in the recent attack on a Navy-Marine reserve center in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

A dozen members of a Marine Corps honor guard stood watch as fellow Marines carried the coffin of Sgt. Carson Holmquist into Grantsburg Senior High School for a public visitation Saturday.

The 25-year-old Holmquist grew up in the northwestern Wisconsin town of 1,300. He graduated in 2008 from Grantsburg High School, where the U.S. flag is flying at half-staff.

Holmquist was among four Marines and a sailor who were killed in the July 16 attack. Police later killed the attacker during a shootout.

Gov. Scott Walker canceled two presidential campaign stops to attend the visitation and funeral. He ordered that flags be flown at half-staff until sunset.
