Funeral Held for US soldier and NYPD officer Killed in Suicide Attack in Afghanistan

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.
