Albany, NY - June 11, 2014 - Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today directed that flags on state government buildings be flown at half-staff on Thursday, June 12, 2014, in honor of a Fort Drum soldier who died in Afghanistan on June 9.

Specialist Terry J. Hurne, a resident of Merced, California, was wounded in a non-combat incident in Logar Province, Afghanistan and died of his wounds later. He was assigned to the 710th Support Battalion of the 10th Mountain Division’s 3rd Brigade Combat Team.

“On behalf of all New Yorkers, I extend my sincere condolences to the family, friends and fellow soldiers of Specialist Hurne,” Governor Cuomo said. “We join with them in mourning the loss of this soldier and we will remember his service to our nation with pride.”

Governor Cuomo has directed that the flags on all state buildings be lowered to half-staff in honor of and in tribute to our state's service members and those stationed in New York who are killed in action or die in a combat zone.
