Flags will fly at half-staff today (1/27) through Monday in honor of an Iowan who died while serving with the Marines.
Governor Branstad ordered the flags lowered to honor 40-year-old Master Sergeant Travis Riddick who was a 1990 graduate of Centerville High School. Sergeant Riddick was one of six Marines killed in action when their helicopter crashed on January 21st in southern Afghanistan. It was Riddick’s second tour in Afghanistan, and he had also served tours in Iraq.
Riddick is survived by his wife Jennifer, six children, his parents and two brothers. Memorial services are scheduled for Sergeant Riddick on Sunday in the auditorium of the Centerville High School gym.
