Gov. Jennifer Granholm has ordered that U.S. flags in Michigan be flown at half-staff Friday to honor a Michigan soldier who was killed in Iraq.

Army Pfc. Charles T. Heinlein Jr., of Hemlock died July 31 when an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle in Baghdad. He was 23.

Two other soldiers died in the incident.

Heinlein was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division at Fort Lewis, Wash.
