Fallen Marine comes home Monday

The body of Lance Cpl. Anthony J. Denier, killed Dec. 2 by enemy fire in Afghanistan, will arrive at

The body of Lance Cpl. Anthony J. Denier, killed Dec. 2 by enemy fire in Afghanistan, will arrive at Albany International Airport late Monday morning and be escorted to his hometown by a procession of police cars, firetrucks and motorcycles.

Bill Schaaf of the Patriot Guard said at least 50 motorcycles will be part of the procession that will bring the 26-year-old Marine’s body up the Northway to Latham, then up Route 9 to Route 146 and into Mechanicville.

The procession accompanying the hearse will also include Mechanicville police cars, state police cars, Saratoga County Sheriff’s Department cars, five funeral home cars with family members, Marine Corps representatives and Mechanicville Mayor Anthony Sylvester.

The Patriot Guard is made up of motorcycle enthusiasts from across the Capital Region and beyond who escort fallen military personnel to their hometown and burial sites. Schaaf said many more than 50 motorcycles may participate in the escort, but that depends on the weather Monday, which could include some rain later in the day.

The Marine’s body will be flown from Dover Air Force Base in Delaware on a special charter flight, according to Marine Corps officials. Schaaf said the plane is expected to land at 11 a.m. Monday, and the procession is tentatively scheduled to start at 11:30.

Once it arrives in Mechanicville, the procession will turn onto Pruyn Hill Road, past Mechanicville High School and onto Central Avenue to Saratoga Avenue. It will go past Denier’s home on Grove Street before proceeding to the American Legion Post 91 hall on South Main Street. The family will spend time with Denier’s body, and then calling hours will be held at the American Legion post from 3 to 7 p.m., according to those planning the services.

Funeral services will be held at the American Legion post at 11 a.m. Tuesday. Burial will follow immediately with full honors in the Gerald B.H. Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery in the town of Saratoga.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has directed that flags on state government buildings be flown at half-staff Monday in honor of Denier, who was on foot patrol with fellow Marines in the Marjey District of Helmand Province on Sunday when he was shot to death. He was assigned to 3rd Battalion, 9th Marines, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, which is based at Camp Lejeune, N.C.

“I join with my fellow New Yorkers in mourning the loss of Lance Cpl. Denier,” Cuomo said. “I extend my deepest sympathy to his family, friends and fellow Marines. We will honor his service and sacrifice, and we are grateful for his dedication to our nation.”
