ELKHART, Ind. - Flags will fly at half-staff next week to honor an Elkhart soldier killed in the line of duty.

Mayor Dick Moore made the request, as a way to pay respect to Staff Sgt. Jesse Williams.

Williams died along with five other soldiers on Tuesday, when the helicopter he was in crashed in Afghanistan.

Mayor Moore is also asking the governor's office to lower state and federal flags too.
