An Elk County man played an important role in John McCain’s funeral this weekend.
Bryce Lanzel is a member of the Honor Guard with the Coast Guard. He was seen carrying McCain’s casket along with members of other branches of the military.
Lanzel told WTAJ, “It was a privilege to be able to carry with them and give the respect him and his family truly deserve. Senator McCain was an American hero, and I hope his family find’s solace in our ceremony. It was truly an honor to be a part of something that will forever go down in history.”
