U.S. Marines, police officers and firefighters escorted the family of a fallen Marine from Hingham home on Wednesday night. 

The family of U.S. Marine Corporal Christopher Orlando returned from Hawaii on Tuesday after traveling to the state during the search for Orlando.

Orlando was on board a Marine helicopter on Jan. 14 when it collided with another helicopter. The search for Orlando and the other ended Jan. 19.

Orlando and the 11 other Marines were declared dead on Jan. 19.

“I think it is really the least we can do is to come out and support our neighbors,” said Mark Hoch, of Lexus of Hingham.

Police escorted the Orlando family from Logan airport to their Hingham home as community members line the streets to welcome them. People lined the escort route to show support for the family as the motorcade proceeded to Hingham. 

"I think it’s important for us to recognize the work that our veterans and our service-people do every day," said Norwell Fire Chief Andy Reardon.
