"He Loved Everything about Being a Soldier," Fallen Hero's Body Returns Home
A fallen soldier's body was returned to North Central Florida Thursday night after he was killed in Afghanistan on August 31st. Private James Anthony Page's body arrived at the Gainesville Regional Airport as family and friends gathered to show their respect. Family members said when Page found out he was a father, he enlisted so that one day his 3-year old son would be proud.
"He loved everything about being a soldier. If you would ever put a definition of a soldier it would be Jamie," said cousin Stephanie Grawcock
The viewing for Private Page will be Friday night. He will be laid to rest Saturday at 11 A.M in Williston. The service is at Knauff funeral home and is open to everyone. Flags will be flown at half-staff in Levy county and the state capital tomorrow in honor of the soldier.
