Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has directed that flags on state government buildings be flown at half-staff on Tuesday, August 14, in honor of a New York Soldier who died in Sarkowi, Afghanistan on August 8.

Maj. Thomas E. Kennedy, of West Point, died when an insurgent detonated a suicide vest. He was assigned to the Headquarters Company of the 4th Infantry Division’s 4th Brigade Combat Team based at Fort Carson, Colorado.

“Along will all New Yorkers I mourn the loss of this outstanding officer,”  Governor Cuomo said. “We will remember his honorable service to our nation and we are grateful for his dedication to duty.”

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.
