A soldier from Eastern Carolina has died in Afghanistan. Flags will fly at half staff in Havelock for the next few days in honor of Specialist Christopher Steven Honaker.
Honaker was a member of the 173rd Airborne regiment. He was killed in action one week ago today in Afghanistan. Honaker's funeral is Saturday at 1 o'clock, at the Cherry Point base chapel in Havelock. American flags in Havelock have been ordered to fly at half staff until then.
