Washington state lowered flags to half staff today in honor of Pvt. Aaron Fairbairn, a 21-year-old soldier from Aberdeen who was killed in Action in Afghanistan on July 4.

Gov. Chris Gregoire issued the order early Thursday morning. The flags will stay at half staff on state buildings through sunset today, or until Friday morning if the flags stay outside round the clock.
