Students offer fond salutation to 'one of their own'


NEW LONDON -- In 2007, Ryane Clark stood in a sea of students, teachers and friends on the day he graduated from New London-Spicer High School.

On Thursday, a sea of students, teachers and friends clutched flags outside NLS High School to honor Clark as his body was carried to his hometown of New London.

Clark, a U.S. Army private first class, was killed last week in Afghanistan.
