Flags to stay at half-staff for pair of New Hampshire soldiers
CONCORD — Gov. John Lynch directed flags to half-staff in honor of Sgt. 1st Class Ryan Savard, who was interred today at Arlington National Cemetery.
In accordance with state law, in the event of the death of any member of the armed forces who dies in combat, the flag shall be flown at half-staff the day of and the day after the service member's burial.
Gov. Lynch asked that flags remain at half-staff Thursday in honor of Capt. Shawn Hogan, a native of Salem. Hogan was killed last week during a training exercise at Fort Campbell in Kentucky.
