Memorial services being held for slain airmen

Mar 10, 2011 7:00:00 AM - thestate.com
A memorial service is being held at a U.S. airbase in Germany for a 21-year-old Virginia airman killed last week by an alleged Islamic extremist at Frankfurt airport.

Prosecutors say Airman 1st Class Zachary R. Cuddeback was shot and killed March 2 by a 21-year-old Kosovo Albanian who wanted to kill Americans in revenge for the Afghanistan mission.

Germany-based Cuddeback, an Illinois native, was the driver of the bus that was to take 15 England-based airmen to Ramstein Air Base for deployment to Afghanistan.

After Thursday's service in Ramstein, a memorial is scheduled Friday at Lakenheath Airfield in England, where the other airman killed in the attack, Senior Airman Nick Alden, 25, of South Carolina, was based.

Funerals for both will be held later in the U.S.
