Governor orders flags lowered in honor of fallen soldier

Gov. John Hickenlooper issued an order today that flags be lowered to half-staff on all public buildings Wednesday in honor of Chief Warrant Officer Kenneth White, who was killed in Afghanistan earlier this month.

Flags should be lowered from sunrise to sunset, according to a news release issued by the governor’s office.

White, 35, died June 5 from injuries sustained when his helicopter crashed.

He was assigned to the First Battalion, 10th Aviation Regiment, 10th Combat Aviation Brigade, 10th Mountain Division, out of Fort Drum, N.Y.

He is survived by his wife, Sarah, and three children, of Watertown, N.Y., and parents John and Linda White, of Fort Collins.

A memorial service is scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday in Fort Collins.
