Michigan State Police Captain Jennifer Johnson, Tpr. Brent Skoczylas and Tpr. Chris Phillips salute as a procession, led by Michigan State Police, turns West onto M-72 in Kalkaska Monday afternoon. U.S. Marine Captain Miguel Nava was one of five Marines killed when their helicopter crashed Feb. 7 near San Diego, California. His body was flown into Grand Rapids, where an escort began to return him to his hometown, Traverse City. “We wanted to pay tribute to the Marine for his service and sacrifice,” said Captain Johnson. The Grand Rapids Post led the procession to Reed City, where the Traverse City Post picked up the escort to bring him home, she added. Nava, 28, commissioned into the Marine Corps in 2017 and was the recipient of decorations including the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, National Defense Service Medal, and Sea Service Deployment Ribbon. Funeral services will be March 2, in Traverse City.
