Hometown Displaying Yellow Ribbons

Yellow ribbons displayed in hometown of captured U-S soldier

Friends and neighbors are rallying in support of an Ohio soldier taken hostage in Iraq. Family and other residents of Army soldier Keith Maupin of suburban Cincinnati are displaying yellow ribbons at their homes in support of the 20-year-old. A videotape made public today shows Maupin held hostage by armed captors in Iraq. Maupin's convoy was attacked in Iraq a week ago. Community leaders in Batavia -- five miles from Maupin's neighborhood -- arranged a public vigil in his honor this evening at the Clermont County Courthouse. Police closed the main road by the courthouse to accommodate the several hundred people who showed up for the event.
