Area residents on Saturday lined the streets of Richmond Hill to pay their respect to a fallen airman apprentice, in what was his final homecoming.
Hundreds, if not more, watched the procession along highways 17 and 144 for Richmond Hill's Cameron Walters, the 21-year-old who died during an active shooter incident at Naval Air Station Pensacola on Dec. 6.
Walter's body was flown to the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport and was followed by a procession south on Interstate 95, east on Georgia 204, south on U.S. 17, and east on Ford Avenue enroute to Richmond Hill Funeral Home.
Along the way, spectators carried flags and saluted as the hearse passed by, escorted by law enforcement vehicles and veterans groups. Uniformed Navy personnel carried the flag-draped coffin into the funeral home.
Walter's funeral was held Monday at Compassion Christian Church. He was buried in Richmond Hill.
