SOUTH YARMOUTH - Huge crowds are gathered outside Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School this afternoon to pay their respects to fallen Marine Cpl. Nicholas George Xiarhos of Yarmouthport.

Fr. Peter Giannakopoulos of St. George Greek Orthodox Church of Cape Cod in Centerville performed a memorial service at the casket. Police and fire officials, military personnel, friends and family paid their respects before the wake was opened to the general public at 4 p.m.

Among those at the wake were Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe, Barnstable County Sheriff James Cummings, state Sen. Robert O'Leary of Barnstable and state Rep. Demetrius Atsalis of Hyannis.

Hundreds gather for Xiarhos funeral

CENTERVILLE - Hundreds of mourners gathered this morning to attend the funeral service for Marine Cpl. Nicholas Xiarhos at the St. George Greek Orthodox Church of Cape Cod.

Xiarhos, 21, a graduate of Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School, died last week after being mortally injured in a roadside bomb blast in southern Afghanistan.

Uniformed servicemen, police and fire officials, U.S. Senator John Kerry and Gov. Deval Patrick were among those at the service.

As mourners waited to enter the church, mournful-sounding Greek music wafted from the church.

There was significant traffic in the area, a repeat of the huge crowds that attended yesterday's wake at the Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School in South Yarmouth and who lined the route of Wednesday's procession when Xiarhos' body was returned by plane to Cape Cod.

Have some respect for a dead American soldier. You Europeans may not agree with American policy, as most Canadians don't, but disgracing the memory of someone who fought for his country this way is childish, and inappropriate. Judging from your nickname on this page you are probably just a Nazi idealizing piece of crap!
