CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The funeral services for Maxton Soviak, the United States Navy corpsman who was killed during the bombing attack at a Kabul airport during evacuations from Afghanistan, were held on Monday.

First, services were held at Edison High School’s football stadium in Milan at 11 a.m.

Soviak, the Petty Officer 3rd Class who was posthumously awarded a Purple Heart medal for his brave actions in service, was one of 13 U.S. service members who was killed during the Aug. 26 attack.

The remains of the 22-year-old Berlin Heights native were flown back to Northeast Ohio last week with an emotional procession to his hometown immediately following the arrival.

A private interment ceremony will be held on Monday afternoon following the funeral services for Soviak.
