Flags flying half-staff
At the request of Governor Nikki Haley, flags are flying at half-staff through sundown Saturday in honor of a serviceman killed this month in Afghanistan. Army Staff Sgt. Girard Glass Jr. of Lumber Bridge, North Carolina died August 3 in a field hospital from what the Defense Department says was a non-combat incident on patrol in the Nangarhar Province. Glass was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
