GUILDERLAND, N.Y. -- Southwest Airlines is offering a hero flight Wednesday to transport Lieutenant Colonel Todd Clark's body to its final resting place, in San Antonio, Texas.

Funeral services for Clark, who died while serving our country overseas, were held at Saint Madeleine Sophie Church in Guilderland on Tuesday.

He and two other New York soldiers were killed earlier this month when a man in an Afghan Army uniform turned on them.

A long line of people came out to pay their respects, and to recognize Clark's service.

Clark's body will be flown from Albany to Baltimore, then from Baltimore to San Antonio, Texas, where he will be buried, later this week.
