Battlefield Burial

A sailor who died in the suspected terrorist bombing of the U.S.S. Cole will be buried at Antietam National Cemetery -- a Civil War cemetery that has been closed since the Korean War. The National Park Service agreed to make an exception for Fireman Apprentice Patrick Roy, whose family lives near the site. Noah interviews John Howard, Superintendent of the Antietam National Battlefield, in Sharpsburg, Maryland.
