ELDORA (KWWL) -

Remembering a fallen hero from Iowa. 

The body of a Marine is home. Lance Corporal Cody Haley, from Eldora, died this month after a training accident in California.

He was 20. 

A procession welcomed Lance Corporal Cody Haley to Eldora on Saturday. 

A motorcade featuring firetrucks and motorcycles was led by a state patrol car and a military services car.

Haley's body made the trip from the Des Moines International Airport to Eldora. 

People in communities along the way paid tribute as the procession passed, some holding up flags and signs in his honor.

Haley's mom posted on Facebook, saying there will be a public funeral for Haley next Saturday at the South Hardin High School Football Field.

The night before, Haley's brother will be wearing his number at a homecoming football game.

About 40 Marines from California will make the trip to Iowa for his funeral.
