Flags Lowered in Honor of Fallen Soldier

The library's flags are flying at half-staff today in honor of U.S. Army Corporal Joseph A. VanDreumel of Standale, Michigan.  Corporal VanDreumel, 32, died Aug. 14 in the Paktika province of Afghanistan while conducting vehicle recovery operations and encountering a secondary explosion. He was assigned to the 1st Battalion of the 2nd Infantry Regiment in the 172nd Infantry Brigade stationed in Grafenwoehr, Germany. He joined the Army in January 2010 and trained at Fort Knox, Kentucky, before serving in Germany from August 2010 through July 2011 and then Afghanistan.
