The Sacrifice of One American Family

 Muslim Funeral Afghanistan

A Muslim Imam leads mourners in prayer during a service for Mohsin Naqvi, a Muslim and native of Pakistan, who emigrated to the U.S. with his family when he was 8 years old and became a citizen at 16 and later an officer in the U.S. Army.  He was killed by a roadside bomb while on patrol last week in Afghanistan.
