CINCINNATI — More than 200 people attended the funeral of a 25-year-old Marine from southwest Ohio who was killed this month in Afghanistan.
Funeral services for Sgt. John P. Huling were held Tuesday at St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church in the Cincinnati suburb of Sharonville. The Middletown Journal reports that hundreds of students from an adjacent Catholic school lined the street outside to meet the funeral procession.
The Pentagon says the West Chester man was killed May 6 by a person wearing an Afghan National Army uniform.
Hundreds of people attended visitation Monday evening at Huling's alma mater, Moeller High School. Dozens had lined a procession route in the rain Sunday when his body arrived in Butler County.
His burial will be later this week at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.
