Flags lowered for Connecticut soldier killed by lightning

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Flags will be lowered around Connecticut for a soldier killed by lightning while training in Georgia last month. Sgt. 1st Class Michael D. Clark of Bolton had served for 22 years on active duty and as a Army reservist. The 41-year-old Clark had deployed four times to Iraq and Afghanistan as part of a medical unit, the 933rd Forward Resuscitative Surgical Company. On Tuesday, Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont ordered all U.S. and state flags lowered to half-staff beginning at sunrise Wednesday and ending at sunset Thursday. Nine other soldiers were injured by the lightning strike at Fort Gordon in Augusta, Georgia.
