    Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley has ordered that the United States and state flags be flown at half-staff in memory of a soldier killed in Afghanistan.
    O'Malley ordered the flags be lowered on Friday from sunrise to sunset in memory of Army Spc. Ronald Wildrick Jr. of Woodsboro, Md. The 30-year-old soldier was killed Dec. 11 by a roadside bomb in Kunar province.

      A service was held Thursday in Woodsboro and Wildrick's remains will be buried Friday at Arlington National Cemetery.
