Governor Andrew Cuomo is ordering that flags on all state government buildings be flown at half-staff on Monday in honor of a Fort Drum soldier who was killed in Afghanistan this week.

Command Sgt. Major Wardell Benjamin Turner died on Monday from wounds suffered when his vehicle was hit by an IED in Kabul.

Turner, a resident of Naticoke, Maryland, was assigned to the Army Garrison at Fort Drum.

On behalf of all New Yorkers, I extend my sincere condolences to the family and friends of Command Sgt. Major Wardell Benjamin Turner,” Governor Cuomo said. “We join with them in mourning the loss of Command Sgt. Major Turner and in honoring his heroism, leadership, and dedication to this great nation.”
