VIDEO: Hundreds Line Inman Ave. for Cpl. Reinhard Procession

Groups of residents and schoolchildren waving flags spanned from Wood Ave. to St. Gertrude's Cemetery in Colonia.

In an awesome display of patriotism, hundreds of residents lined the 1.5 mile final stretch in from  in Clark to in Colonia.

Despite the bitter 30 degree weather, schoolchildren came out from their classrooms and residents from their homes to pay respect to the fallen soldier.

As the long line of cars drove past, residents stood still and silent, many of them with hands over their hearts or in a firm salute.

Reinhard, 25, was on a helicopter mission when  the aircraft went down in the southern Afghani province of Helmand. It was the deadliest attack against US military since August when 30 American troops died after a Chinook helicopter was apparently shot down in Wardak province.
