Harrisburg – Governor Tom Corbett ordered all United States and Pennsylvania flags in the Capitol Complex and at commonwealth facilities in Lancaster County lowered to half-staff on Saturday, Oct. 26, in honor of Army Staff Sgt. Patrick H. Quinn.
Quinn, 26, of Quarryville, was killed Oct. 13 when enemy forces attacked his base in Afghanistan. A Green Beret, Quinn joined the Army in 2006.
Flags are to remain at half-staff until sunset on the day of Quinn’s burial in Lancaster County. Both the U.S. and Pennsylvania flags should be flown at full-staff on Sunday.
All Pennsylvanians are invited to participate in this tribute.
