Flags at half-staff for Fort Drum soldier

ALBANY - Flags on state government buildings are at half-staff today, 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.”
