Body of fallen soldier from BK returned home
The body of a young Marine from Brooklyn who was killed in Afghanistan has arrived back on U.S. soil.
Family members say they are making arrangements for 24-year-old Nicholas Aleman, who had only served a few months in Afghanistan when he was killed.
Gov. David Paterson (D-N.Y.) has ordered that all flags on government buildings be flown at half-staff Friday to honor Aleman.
