Governor Tom Corbett has ordered flags at half-staff to honor a Lancaster County soldier who was killed in Afghanistan.

Corbett said all United States and Pennsylvania flags in the Capitol Complex, and at commonwealth facilities in Lancaster County, should be lowered Saturday in honor of Army Staff Sgt. Patrick H. Quinn.

Quinn, a 26-year-old Green Beret from Quarryville, died Oct. 13 when enemy forces attacked his base with small arms fire.

Flags are to remain at half-staff until sunset on Saturday, the day of Quinn's burial in Lancaster County.

Both the U.S. and Pennsylvania flags should be flown at full-staff on Sunday, Corbett said.
