Updated: Sunday, June 29 2014, 10:46 AM CDT
OTTUMWA, IA (AP) - The funeral procession route an Iowa Marine's body will travel Sunday has been lined with hundreds of American flags.   

The Ottumwa Courier reports more than 200 volunteers helped set up the flags Saturday in preparation for Lance Cpl. Adam R. Wolff's funeral on Sunday afternoon.   

Wolff died along with two other Marines on June 20 while conducting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan. All three were assigned to 2nd Combat Engineer Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina   

The 25-year-old combat engineer joined the Marines in December 2012.   

He was from Ottumwa but had moved to Cedar Rapids to live with a sibling before leaving for Afghanistan in March.
