Funeral services were held Tuesday for another fallen soldier from the Chicago area.
Hundreds gathered at Orland Park’s Parkview Christian Church for the funeral service of Private First Class Aaron Toppen of Mokena.
Toppen was on patrol in Afghanistan when his unit was ambushed; air support was called in, but the coalition warplanes mistakenly fired on the Americans.
Toppen’s flag-draped casket was carried out of the church and placed on a horse-drawn carriage.
He was buried in St. John’s Cemetery in Mokena.
