Community Mourns Deceased Idaho Marine
A community gathered Sunday to mourn but also remember a hero. Marine Lance Corporal Kenneth Cochran was laid to rest at just 20 years of age. He died while serving overseas in Afghanistan. Community members, some who knew him and some who didn’t, packed into the Parma High school gymnasium for his funeral. Those close to him said Cochran was a religious and deeply passionate person. He loved to write poems, short stories and letters. The Department of Defense has not released the specific details of what happened to Cochran. Officials said he was involved in combat and that the incident is under investigation.
