NEWBURGH, NY (WFSB) -

Servicemen and women remembered a Connecticut hometown hero Wednesday afternoon.

National Guard members at Steward Air National Guard Base in Newburgh, NY, attended a ceremony for Staff Sgt. Todd Lobraico Jr.

Lobraico, 22, was killed in the line of duty in Afghanistan Thursday, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said in a statement Friday.

Lobraico was a member of the New York Air National Guard and before joining the service, graduated from New Fairfield High School in 2008.

Services for Lobraico will be held on the Westside Campus of O'Neill Center at Western Connecticut State University on Friday at 11 a.m.

Off-site parking is being offered at Danbury Fair Mall, due to the lack of parking spaces in that area of campus.
