Governor Little orders flags at half-staff in honor of fallen soldier

Boise, Idaho – Governor Brad Little has ordered all U.S. and state flags in Idaho to be flown at half-staff on Saturday, September 14, 2019, in honor of U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Dustin B. Ard.

Ard, 31, of Idaho Falls, died August 29, 2019, from wounds sustained during combat operations in Zabul Province, Afghanistan.

“I want to express my sincerest condolences to the family of Sgt. 1st Class Ard,” Governor Little said. “Ard leaves a legacy for all Idahoans of strength, service, and loyalty to this great nation. Please join me by honoring him on September 14. As you see flags at half-staff that day, take a moment to reflect on the great sacrifice Ard and his family have made in service to the United States of America.”
