Guam - The body of 21-year-old U.S. Marine Corps Corporal Dave Michael Santos will arrive on Guam on Wednesday. Santos was originally from Rota and was allegedly stabbed by a fellow Marine in Afghanistan. Representative for the Santos Family Severina Ogo says Santos' body will arrive on Guam at 1am Wednesday morning and will be transported to Ada's Funeral Home for the viewing.

"I would like to inform all the families and friends as well as the general public here on Guam for this viewing occasion," she said.  "And this is their opportunity to come and pay their last respects, being that transportation to Rota is very limited. aAlot of people want to go but are not able to because of transportation."

Ogo says Santos' body will be transported to Rota by way of a commercial flight and will be escorted by Marines flying in from Okinawa.
