The remains of a 23-year-old Marine who was killed in Afghanistan are scheduled to return to Michigan on Friday.

A spokesman for Selfridge Air National Guard Base says the body of Lance Cpl. Steven P. Stevens II of Detroit is to arrive at the southeastern Michigan base on Friday morning. Selfridge is next to Mount Clemens in Macomb County's Harrison Township.

Tech Sgt. Dan Heaton says Stevens received a posthumous promotion from private first class.

The Pentagon says Stevens died last Friday while conducting combat operations in Helmand province.

He was assigned to the 1st Combat Engineer Battalion, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Pendleton, Calif.
