WESTOVER AIR RESERVE BASE, Mass. --
The body of Army Private First Class Brian Odiorne came home to Ware, Mass. March 2. The aircraft carrying his casket landed at Westover. As the procession traveled to the Westover Road Gate from the flight line, Airmen rendered salutes to the fallen 21-year-old. The procession included Massachusetts State Troopers, Chicopee Police, Ware Police, and the soldier’s family. Some of the
Westover “saluters” stood out in the cold waiting for almost an hour. The winds reached 48 mph with a wind chill of 17 degrees.
