A memorial service was held Saturday at the University of Washington for a 23-year-old Marine who was killed Jan. 31 in Afghanistan.
Sgt. William C. Stacey grew up in Seattle. His parents, Robert and Robin Stacey, are history professors at the university.
The Defense Department said Stacey was killed by a homemade bomb while on foot patrol. He was on his fourth deployment to Afghanistan.
Stacey was assigned to a unit from Camp Pendleton, Calif., and listed his hometown as Seattle, WA.
Note: article incorrectly posted that Will listed his hometown as Redding, Calif.
