The body of one of three New Yorkers killed in an attack in Afghanistan has arrived in his upstate hometown while the funeral of a second victim is being held in the Hudson Valley.

Local media report that the plane carrying Lt. Col. Todd Clark's body arrived Monday morning at Albany International Airport. His funeral is being held Tuesday afternoon in suburban Guilderland.

Clark, Lt. Col. Jaimie Leonard of Warwick and Joseph Morabito of Hunter were killed June 8 in an attack by an Afghan soldier they were training.

Morabito was a retired law enforcement officer working as a military contractor. His funeral is Monday morning in Greene County.

Services for Leonard, a 1997 graduate of the U.S. Military Academy, are being held Thursday at West Point.
