KENSINGTON - Hundreds paid their final respects Friday to a fallen Marine and a state trooper from Brooklyn who is remembered as a fearless leader.

McKenna previously served in Uzbekistan and Afghanistan. He graduated from the New York State Police Academy last year before shipping out to serve his country.
