Flags lowered to honor fallen soldier
Washington state agencies have been directed by Gov. Chris Gregoire to lower flags to half staff today in honor of a fallen soldier, whose wife and son live in Spokane.
U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Timothy P. Davis of Montesano was killed Feb. 20 when the convoy he was traveling in was struck with an improvised explosive device near Bagram, Afghanistan, state officials said.
A memorial service will be held Saturday for Davis at Montesano High School. He leaves his wife Meagan and their 1-year-old son in Spokane, his mother Sally Sheldon of Aberdeen and father Mike Davis of Ocean Shores.
