Flags Half-Staff For Fallen Marine 10 Mar 14

Governor Dayton has ordered flags be flown at half-staff today (MON) at all state and federal buildings in honor of a fallen Marine from southern Minnesota.  Twenty-year-old Lance Corporal Caleb Erickson of Waseca was killed in action on Friday, February 28th by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan. Erickson is set to be laid to rest today at Grace Lutheran Church in Waseca. Residents lined a procession route along old Highway 14 and held flags to pay their respects when Erickson’s body was returned to Minnesota over the weekend.
