Moving ceremony pays tribute to fallen Navajo warrior

Scores of mourners turned out for the funeral of Marine Lance Cpl. Quinn A. Keith, a member of the Navajo Nation, on Wednesday.

Keith, 21, was killed last week in Iraq in a suicide bomber attack. He was one of six Marines who died.

Keith was remembered for always making people laugh. Family and friends said he was always smiling.

Navajo Nation Vice President Frank Dayish Jr. attended the funeral service as did former president Peter MacDonald. Both are former Marines.

Keith's younger brother has also served in Iraq.
