Servicewoman killed overseas remembered

COHOCTON, N.Y. -- A servicewoman killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan was remembered as "an All-American girl" at a funeral service at her hometown in upstate New York.

More than 1,000 mourners attended a Saturday service in Cohocton for Devin Snyder, who died of wounds suffered in a June 4 attack that also killed three other members of her unit.

Snyder was 20.

She had enlisted in 2008 and had been in Afghanistan since March, serving with the 793rd Military Police Battalion.

Her mother, Dineen Snyder, told the Democrat and Chronicle newspaper after the service that her daughter was humble, and would have thought the big turnout for her funeral was "making a big deal out of nothing."
