Friends, family and fellow service members gathered Friday to honor the lift of a Naval Station Norfolk sailor who died trying to save the life of another sailor.

MA2 Mark Mayo died last month in the shooting on the USS Mahon when Jeffery Savage took the gun from the Petty Officer of the Watch and started firing. Savage was then killed by Naval Security Officers.

The funeral was held at Arlington National Cemetery.
