    A West Point cadet killed during a training exercise has been laid to rest at the academy's cemetery.

    The funeral for Christopher J. Morgan was held Saturday at the United States Military Academy.

    WABC-TV reports speakers included former president Bill Clinton. Morgan's father had been part of the president's security detail.

    West Point's Commandant of Cadets, Maj. Gen. Steve Gilland, called the 22-year-old "an exemplary classmate and teammate" and said the young man from West Orange, New Jersey, was "tremendously proud to be a cadet."
