Morehead City Honors Staff Sgt. Gore

The Morehead City Police Department, among other entities, escorted the body of U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Joshua “Caleb” Gore  from the Raleigh-Durham International Airport to Morehead City on the evening of Thursday, April 20. This video shows the processional as it passed underneath the American flag that was flown between Morehead City Fire-EMS  and Atlantic Beach, NC apparatuses around 9 p.m. on the way to Munden Funeral Home. 

He was one of nine soldiers killed during a training exercise near Fort Campbell in Kentucky on March 29th. The 25-year-old was a West Carteret High School graduate, before he began his service in the Army.
