Flags across the state are at half-staff in honor of a Fort Drum soldier who died overseas last month.
Nineteen year old Joshua Mikeasky died during a non-combat-related incident in Afghanistan on December 13.
He was assigned to the 10th Mountain Division's 2nd Brigade Combat Team. Army officials have not identified the incident that killed him.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo directed all flags at state buildings be lowered in his honor on Wednesday.
