(KMOV) – Funeral services for Lance Corporal Kenneth Corzine were held Thursday at the Corner Stone Assembly of God Church in Bethalto, Illinois.                 

Corzine died Christmas Eve, after being injured in Afghanistan.
 
Hundreds turned out to support Corzine, despite windchills in the teens.
 
One supporter, a man known as "Larry the flagman," posted American flags for at least a mile leading up to the church.

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church demonstrated at the funeral, but the chants from supporters drowned out the message of the opponents.
