Day of Mourning

Ohio Governor Bob Taft has declared a statewide day of mourning Monday.

Twenty marines from Ohio died in Iraq last week. Five were tri-state men.

In their memory, Cincinnati Mayor Charlie Luken is asking that all flags at city buildings be lowered to half-staff. 

Sunday the group support the troops held a benefit concert to gather supplies to send to Iraq. One marine, who has spent two tours in Iraq says the care packages do wonders for morale.

Everything collected Sunday will be mailed overseas later this week.
