The body of U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Will Lindsay, who was killed last month in combat in Afghanistan, will return to Colorado Springs on Wednesday, and the governor has ordered flags to be lowered across Colorado.

The 33-year-old Cortez man was assigned to A Company, 2nd battalion, 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) at Fort Carson in July 2006, according to a news release from the U.S. Army Special Operations Command.

He died in Kunduz Province, Afghanistan, as part of Operation Freedom’s Sentinel. The governor’s news release stated he was performing maintenance when he was killed.

Lindsay is survived by his wife and four daughters.
