Thousands Turn Out for Hero’s Welcome, Farewell

BERLIN HEIGHTS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – A hero’s welcome.

Thousands of residents lined the roadway from Milan to Berlin Heights in Erie County on Wednesday, saying “thank you” to 22-year-old Navy Hospital Corpsman Max Soviak.

He died in that terror attack in Afghanistan last month.

Soviak’s body arrived in Cleveland Wednesday morning.

The procession went past Edison High School in Milan, where Soviak graduated in 2017.

The funeral is Monday.
