Flags at half-staff to honor NC soldier who died in Syria


Governor Roy Cooper ordered all of the US flags at state facilities to be lowered to half-staff Monday in honor of Army Specialist Antonio I. Moore, 22,  of Wilmington.

Moore died after an accident in Syria Friday, according to the Department of Defense.

The government says he died in a “rollover accident.”

Saturday’s media release says that he was conducting “route clearing operations.”

Moore was assigned to the 363rd Engineer Battalion, 411th Engineer Brigade, Knightdale, N.C.

The incident is being investigated.
