Funeral arrangements have been set for a Michigan Marine killed this month when a Black Hawk helicopter crashed during a training mission in Florida.

Visitation for Staff Sgt. Marcus S. Bawol, 26, will be 2-9 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday at the A.H. Peters Funeral Home in Warren. A rosary will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Bawol's body will lie in repose at 10:30 a.m. Thursday until a funeral Mass at 11 a.m. at St. Louise de Marillac Catholic Church in Warren. Interment will be at Arlington National Cemetery.

Bawol was one of 11 victims, among three from Michigan, killed when their helicopter crashed in dense fog during a training mission from Eglin Air Force base on March 10. Trevor Blaylock, a Marine from Lake Orion, and Andrew Seif from Holland Township also were killed.

A 2006 graduate of Warren Mott High School, Bawol attended Olivet College for a year before joining the Marine Corps in 2008.
