Flags ordered to half-staff for Pennsylvania soldier

Pennsylvania

Governor Tom Wolf has ordered flags to half-staff to honor a Pennsylvania soldier killed in Afghanistan.

Army PFC Joshua Mikeasky, 19, of Johnstown, died Thursday at Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan.

The Department of Defense says it was a non-combat related incident and it is under investigation. 

Mikeasky is the third Pennsylvania service member to die while serving in Afghanistan in recent weeks. 

Army Sgt Jason McClary of Westmoreland County and Air Force SSgt Dylan Elchin of Beaver County were killed by a roadside bomb last month.
