Deputies to escort body of fallen Hillsborough soldier

TAMPA — Hillsborough County deputies plan to escort the remains of fallen Army medic Paul Cuzzupe through Tampa on Wednesday. The public is invited to greet the procession.

Cuzzupe, 23, died Aug. 8 in combat operations in Afghanistan, according to military officials. He grew up in Seffner and died shortly after receiving the Army Commendation Medal for his efforts to save an Afghani child's life.

His body will arrive at MacDill Air Force Base at 10 a.m. There will be a ceremony on the tarmac, and then at 11 a.m. deputies will escort his body to Hillsboro Memorial Gardens in Brandon.

The route is as follows:

The escort will leave the base from the Bayshore Boulevard exit. It will travel east on Bayshore Boulevard, continue onto Platt Street, turn north onto Florida Avenue, east on Jackson Street, north on Jefferson Street, and east on Twiggs Street to Channelside Drive.

It will then travel north on Channelside to State Road 60, and it will keep heading east to Hillsboro Memorial Gardens at 2323 W Brandon Blvd.
