Flag to Fly at Half-Staff, Honoring Fallen Maryland Soldier

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has ordered the Maryland State Flag to be lowered to half-staff, effective at sunrise, Thursday, December 29, 2016 and returned to full-staff at sunset, Thursday, December 29, 2016. This is in honor of Sgt. First Class Allan E. Brown, who was a Soldier from Maryland, in the Army, who died.

Brown died Tuesday after being hospitalized for injuries from a Nov. 12 bombing in Bagram, Afghanistan, according to the Department of Defense.

Two other soldiers — Sgt. John W. Perry, 30, of Stockton, California, and Pfc. Tyler R. Iubelt, 20, of Tamaroa, Illinois — and two American contractors were killed in the explosion. More than a dozen U.S. service members and one Polish soldier had been injured, WTOP reports.
