ANDERSON, Mo. (AP) _ Hundreds of people lined the streets to

honor a southwest Missouri man killed in Iraq this week.

Friends said Christopher Marion was quiet but had a great sense

of humor. Many others didn't know him but turned out anyway.

The 20-year-old Pineville man was killed Wednesday when an

improvised explosive device was detonated near the Humvee he was

riding on north of Baghdad.

Three other men were also killed. All of them had been stationed

at Fort Campbell, Kentucky.
