Swampscott Marine Buried

The first female service-member from Massachusetts killed in the Iraq war will be laid to rest today.

Marine Captain Jennifer Harris was buried in her hometown of Swampscott.

The 28-year-old was killed earlier this month when the CH-46 Sea Knight helicopter she was piloting was shot down outside Baghdad.

She was on her third tour of duty, and was less than a week from returning home when she was killed.
