The funeral for 54-year-old Joseph Morabito will be held this morning at a church in Haines Falls in Greene County.

The military funeral for 40-year-old Lt. Col. Todd Clark will be Tuesday afternoon at a church in the Albany suburb of Guilderland. He'll be buried at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery in San Antonio, Texas.

Services for 39-year-old Lt. Col. Jaimie Leonard of Warwick will be held Thursday at West Point Chapel at the U.S. Military Academy. Leonard, a 1997 graduate of the academy, will be buried at West Point Cemetery.

All three were killed June 8 during the attack at an Afghan army base. Morabito was a civilian contractor.
