Thousands of police and U.S. military service officers are expected to line the streets of Manhattan for a funeral for a U.S. soldier and New York City police officer killed in a suicide attack in Afghanistan.
Fox News reported that the service for Joseph Lemm will be held Wednesday at St. Patrick's Cathedral. The 45-year-old Westchester resident was a technical sergeant in the Air Guard's 105th Base Security Squadron and a 15-year member of the NYPD. He was killed last Monday when his patrol was attacked by a suicide bomber outside Bagram Air Base.
On Thursday, the remains of 31-year-old Staff Sgt. Louis Bonacasa of Long Island will be returned in a ceremony at Stewart Air National Guard Base in Newburgh. Bonacasa was also killed in the attack.
