Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Thursday called for flags across the state to fly at half-staff today in honor of fallen Fort Drum soldier Pfc. Joshua A. Gray.

Pfc. Gray, 21, of Van Lear, Ky., died Monday in what was described as a non-combat-related incident at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan.

“On behalf of all New Yorkers, I extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Private 1st Class Joshua Gray,” Gov. Cuomo said in a statement. “We are saddened at the death of this young soldier, and we join with his fellow soldiers at Fort Drum in mourning his passing and honoring his service.”

Pfc. Gray served as a satellite communications system operator-maintainer in the 10th Mountain Division’s Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion.
