HARRISBURG — Gov. Tom Corbett has ordered United States and state flags at the Capitol Complex and in Lackawanna County to be lowered to half-staff on Friday in honor of U.S. Army Air Force 1st Lt. Robert G. Fenstermacher.

Fenstermacher, of Scranton, was killed in action at age 23 during World War II when his aircraft crashed in Belgium. His remains were recently identified and are being buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

Both flags shall remain lowered until sunset on Friday and be raised to full-staff on Saturday.

All Pennsylvanians are authorized to participate in this tribute, the Governor’s Office announced.
