DOVER, Del. (WBOC/AP)- Officers from throughout the state of Delaware have escorted the bodies of two Marines killed in Tennessee last week from Dover Air Force Base.
    
In a Facebook posting, Delaware State Police said motor officers participated in the escort to Philadelphia International Airport on Thursday morning. From the airport, police said the Marines were set to continue to their final resting places. Police say two other Marines and a sailor killed in the July 16 shooting will be escorted at a later date.
    
Five service members were killed during an attack on military facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee, last week. The gunman was killed by police.

Motor officers are often called upon by the Dover Air Force Base Mortuary Affairs to conduct these escorts for fallen service members killed in the line of duty, police said.
