Flags at half staff Sunday for Williamsburg, KY soldier
Sgt. David K. Cooper died of wounds suffered in Baghdad
From Commonwealth News Center
Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear has directed that flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff on Sunday, September 7, 2008, in honor of a Kentucky soldier who died supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom.
According to the Department of Defense, Sgt. David K. Cooper, 25, of Williamsburg, Ky., died August 27 in Baghdad, of wounds suffered in Qadasiyah, Iraq, when his dismounted patrol came under small arms fire. He was assigned to Forward Support Company, 4th Battalion, 42nd Field Artillery, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, Fort Hood, Texas.
Sgt. Cooper will be interred at Bowlin Cemetery in Jellico, TN., on Sunday, September 7. The governor has directed that flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff from sunrise to sunset on that day.
Gov. Beshear encourages individuals, businesses, organizations and government agencies to join in this tribute.
Flag status information is available at www.governor.ky.gov.
