Airman's Body Returned to Home State

MILWAUKEE --  The body of a Wisconsin airman killed along with 10 others in a military plane crash in Afghanistan is being returned to his home state.

The remains of Airman Quinn Johnson-Harris will arrive at Mitchell International Airport Thursday. The 21-year-old airman was a 2012 graduate of Homestead High School in the Milwaukee suburb of Mequon. Johnson-Harris was among 11 people killed Oct. 2 when an Air Force C-130 crashed at a base in Afghanistan.

Law enforcement officers will escort the airman's body to a funeral home Thursday. A military funeral procession with the American Legion's horse and carriage is planned for Saturday before his funeral at Christian Faith Fellowship in Milwaukee.

Johnson-Harris will be laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia on Nov. 2.
