Funeral service for Major Robert Marchanti II at the Arlington National Cemetery. Marchanti, 48, a longtime physical-education teacher in the Baltimore County public schools, had been working since September as a mentor to the Afghan National Police, part of the NATO partnering mission at the center of U.S. strategy in the country, when he and another officer were shot at the Interior Ministry in Kabul. It was his first deployment to Afghanistan.
