Fallen U.S. Army Major General Harold Greene is laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery Thursday -- with full military honors. His family mourns. General Greene was killed in Kabul, Afghanistan, in an insider attack at this British-run military training academy on August 5th. More than a dozen people were wounded. It is believed that the gunman was an Afghan soldier. At the ceremony, General Greene's wife, Dr. Susan Myers, is presented with a flag. His son -- First Lieutenant Matthew Joseph Myers Greene -- kneels and kisses the casket. U.S. military officials said Greene was the most senior U.S. military official killed in action overseas since the war in Vietnam. The latest insider attack has raised fresh questions about the ability of NATO soldiers to train and advise Afghan security forces as western nations gradually withdraw from the country.
