Flags Lowered on Wednesday to Honor Staff Sergeant Hammond


 Governor Earl Ray Tomblin has ordered all flags to be lowered on Wednesday in honor of Staff Sergeant Ryan Hammond.

The Moundsville native died last month during a plane crash in Afghanistan.

On Wednesday, his friends and family will come together to remember him.

Memorial services have been scheduled for 1:00-3:00 p.m. and 5:00-8:00 p.m. at Altmeyer’s on Grant Avenue in Moundsville.

Hammond will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery at a later date.

He was only 26.
