BORDENTOWN CITY — Hundreds of family members, friends, fellow servicemen and others came together Saturday afternoon to remember Spc. Benjamin G. Moore, a U.S. soldier who was killed in Afghanistan.

Inside Trinity United Methodist Church, every pew and open space was filled to with people there to honor the fallen soldier. Two servicemen stood on opposite sides of Moore's casket like watchdogs protecting their leader.

Outside the church, hundreds more stood on Farnsworth Avenue, bundled from head-to-toe in the frigid weather, clutching American flags tightly to their chest. Three women held a banner that read, "Thank You Ben."

Moore was among several soldiers who were killed on Jan. 12 when enemy forces attacked their unit with an improvised explosive device.
