More than 1,000 mourners paid tribute Friday to a Marine from Connecticut who was killed in a training exercise explosion in Nevada. The funeral for Lance Corporal Roger Muchnick Jr., 23, was held at a church in Lenox, his maternal grandparents’ hometown. He was buried next to his great-uncle, William Coakley, a Navy pilot killed during the Vietnam War. Muchnick, who served tours in Kuwait and Afghanistan, grew up in Westport, Conn. He was one of seven Marines killed March 18 when a mortar shell exploded in its firing tube during an exercise. (AP)
