LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Gov. Jennifer Granholm has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff for a soldier from Saginaw who was killed in Afghanistan.

Flags are to be lowered Tuesday in honor of Army Specialist Deangelo B. Snow.

The 22-year-old died Sept. 17 when insurgents attacked his vehicle with a rocket-propelled grenade in Kandahar province.

Snow was assigned to the 526th Brigade Support Battalion, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Ky.

Snow's funeral service is scheduled for Tuesday at Wolverine State Baptist Headquarters in Saginaw. Burial is to follow at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Saginaw.
