GREEN BAY (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker has ordered flags to be lowered to half staff on Monday in honor of a Howard man who died while serving in Afghanistan.

Twenty-two-year-old Justin Ross died March 26 in Helmand province of wounds suffered when his unit was attacked by small arms fire. Ross was assigned to the 863rd Engineer Battalion in Wausau.

He is the son of New Freedom Church pastor Ron Ross and was a 2007 graduate of Bay Port High School in Suamico.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports that his visitation is set for Sunday and Monday at First Assembly of God Church. A memorial service is set for Monday.
