STONY POINT, N.Y. -- The Stony Point Police Department joined the New York Police Department at St Patrick's Cathedral on Wednesday at the funeral Mass for Detective Joseph Lemm.

Lemm was a member of the New York Air National Guard and a member of the New York City Police Department for 15 years.

Lemm, Louis Bonocasa, Chester McBride, Michael Cinco, Adrianna Vorderbruggen, and Peter Taub were killed by a suicide bomber in a village near Bagram Air Base Afghanistan on Dec. 21. Two U.S. Air Force Security Forces airmen who were with them were wounded in the attack.

The troops were conducting a joint patrol as part of an investigation when the bomber drove a motorcycle into them and detonated the explosives.

Lemm and Bonocasa were posthumously promoted to the rank of special agent with the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations.

To send condolences contact Executive Director Jeffrey D. Specht, U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations, 27130 Telegraph Road, Suite W-1683, Quantico, Va. 22134. or Call (240)-857-0989
