Officials and family members say an Army specialist based at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, was killed in Afghanistan when his vehicle was hit by a mine.

Governor Jim Gibbons said flags at the Nevada Capitol will be flown at half-staff Friday in honor of Army Specialist David Joseph Drakulich, a forward observer and expert rifleman who was serving his third tour in Afghanistan.

Drakulich was assigned to the 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
