The library's flags are flying at half-staff today in honor of Sgt. Kristopher J. Gould, 25, of Frankenlust Township, who died in the Ghazni province Sunday, February 27, 2011, from wounds suffered when insurgents attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device.
Sgt. Gould began his military service with the Michigan Army National Guard in 2003 and joined the United States Army in 2006. He served three tours of duty in the Middle East and was awarded the Bronze Star Medal and Purple Heart posthumously.
