CALVERTON - Funeral services for a Marine from Mastic Beach were held today at Calverton National Cemetery.

Nick Buscanera and another Marine from upstate New York were killed in a car accident near Camp Lejeune in North Carolina earlier this month.

The Marine was a passenger in the car, which was discovered upside down and submerged in a canal.

Buscanera had spent four years in the William Floyd ROTC before graduating in 2012.

At 17, he signed up to serve because he was inspired by his father's service in the Marines.
