Boston man gets video of Navy SEAL casket at Logan
Before the body of Navy Seal William Marston was brought to Concord last week it first arrived at Boston's Logan International Airport.
"The captain came on the loud speaker and said that we were carrying a fallen hero and that his escort, a Navy Seal, was in the back," said Boston resident Kevin Colleran.
Colleran was on the flight that arrived in Boston from Atlanta. As the casket was unloaded, he captured video of the ceremony from his window seat.
"We could tell how important it was to everyone outside on the runway and I think we just felt the right thing to do was to stay put in our seats until it was completed," said Colleran.
Logan is known for being very accommodating to military families. Manchester-Boston Regional Airport gave us this statement about transporting fallen soldiers:
"These are obviously very emotional, and often very private ceremonies, but take top priority when we are notified that a soldier will be arriving here at MHT. The family's wishes -and their privacy- always comes first so we take the necessary steps to accommodate their requests and help make an extremely difficult situation a little easier to bear."
Collander's video and photos have been shared by many on social media and has now become part of the tribute to Marston and his family.
