Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett has ordered all U.S. and state flags in the Capitol Complex and at commonwealth facilities in York County to fly at half staff Saturday in honor of a local soldier killed in Afghanistan.
The gesture is in honor of U.S. Army Spc. Cameron J. Stambaugh, a 2010 Spring Grove Area High School graduate who was killed July 8.
Corbett is inviting the public to join in the tribute, according to a news release.
A funeral service for Stambaugh, 20, is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Saturday at Harvest Chapel Church, located at 6947 York Road in Abbottstown.
Stambaugh will be laid to rest at Trinity Roth UCC's cemetery at 6417 Church Road in Spring Grove. Full military honors by the U.S. Army Honor Guard will be provided.
Stambaugh was one of the six NATO service members killed July 8 when an armored vehicle he was in was demolished by a roadside bomb. He was deployed to Afghanistan in February.
