DENVER (AP) – Flags are flying at half-staff across Colorado in honor of a Parker Marine killed earlier this month in Afghanistan.
The Pentagon says that 23-year-old Cpl. David Sonka of Parker and another Marine were killed May 4 during combat operations. The circumstances of the deaths are still being investigated.
Sonka’s funeral is scheduled for Thursday morning in Littleton. Interment will follow at Fort Logan National Cemetery.
