Destin Honors Slain Marine

A Marine killed in Iraq will be honored with a monument at Destin's new city hall.

Twenty-three-year-old Sergeant Adam Cann was killed Jan. 5 by a suicide bomber.

Cann was working with a bomb sniffing dog that detected a suicide bomber trying to infiltrate an Iraqi police recruiting station in Ar Ramadi, Iraq.

Cann's mother, Betsy Beebe, says hundreds of people could have been killed if the bomber had gotten through the checkpoint.

Her son lived in Davie, but she says he also considered Destin home.

Cann joined the Marines out of high school. After a tour in Afghanistan, he did one tour in Iraq and decided to reenlist.
