James McIlvaine, holds McIlvaine’s daughter Alexa McIlvaine (C) while being comforted by Eric Cembrook (L) during a visit to Section 60 at Arlington National Cemetery during the burial service for Spc. Stephen Mace Monday in Arlington, Virginia. McIlvaine and Mace were both from the Purcellville, Virginia area. McIlvaine was killed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in April 2009, and Mace was killed October 3, 2009 along with seven other U.S. soldiers in the Nuristan province of Afghanistan.
