RICHMOND, Va. (WAVY) - Flags across the U.S. and Commonwealth of Virginia are flying at half-staff Thursday to honor a fallen Newport News Soldier.
Army Sergeant Caryn Nouv was killed alongside Army Sergeant Eric Lawson when their vehicle was attacked by an improvised device and small arms fire in Afghanistan on July 27. Both were stationed at Ft. Eustis.
Nouv, 29, of Newport News had been with the Army since 2009. It was her first combat deployment.
Gov. Bob McDonnell issued the following declaration on the flag status:
It is further encouraged that the flags of the United States of America and the Commonwealth of Virginia may be flown at half-staff on all local, state, and federal buildings and grounds in the City of Newport News, the County of York, and in any other locality as deemed appropriate, in respect and memory of United States Army Sergeant Caryn Nouv.
I hereby order that the flags shall be lowered at sunrise on Thursday, August 8th, 2013, and remain at half-staff until sunset.
