Flags fly at half-staff to honor soldiers killed in Afghanistan
Flags are flying at half-staff Thursday in honor of the Air National Guard members who died in an attack in Afghanistan.
Sgt. Louis Bonacasa, of Long Island, and Sgt. Joseph Lemm, of West Harrison, were two of the six soldiers killed in a suicide bombing on Monday. Their caskets were flown to Delaware this week.
Both men were stationed out of Stewart's 105th Air National Guard Wing in Newburgh.
Bonacasa and Lemm are the second and third Air National Guardsmen based out of Stewart to die in the line of duty.
