Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer ordered that the national and state flags be flown at half-staff on Monday morning (Nov. 2) until sundown on Tuesday evening (Nov. 3) to honor U.S. Army Sgt. First Class James R. Stright.

Stright, of Libby, died on Oct. 23 of injuries sustained when his MH-60 helicopter crashed off the coast of Virginia during a training mission.
