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.
