Rick Scott Orders Flags at Half-Staff for Specialist Justin Horsley
Gov. Rick Scott has ordered state and national flags lowered to half-staff outside the Brevard County Courthouse, Palm Bay City Hall and Florida Capitol on Wednesday to honor U.S. Army Specialist Justin L. Horsley, of Palm Bay.
Horsley, 21, was one of two Floridians killed July 22 after their unit was attacked with an improvised explosive device in Pul-E Alam, Afghanistan.
U.S. Army Specialist Brenden N. Salazar, 20, of Chuluota in Seminole County, also died in the attack.
Both were assigned to the 1st Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, Caserma Ederle, Italy.
Flags have already been lowered across Florida to mark the mass-shooting in Oak Creek, Wis.
