Canadian Soldier Honored

A Canadian solider who died fighting in Iraq is honored today in his hometown.  

A memorial service for 24-year-old Miles Henderson took place this afternoon at a church. 

Family, friends and those who never knew the Army Chief Warrant Officer came out to say their final goodbyes.

"We are here for one reason to honor the memory of this fallen hero," says Brent Jackson, a Patriot Guard Rider.

"Greatest man in the world," says Blake Villanueva a Retired U.S. Marine Corps.

Henderson was killed nearly two weeks ago in Iraq when the helicopter he was flying crashed.
