Flags at Half Staff on Friday for Local Navy Seal Killed

Flags will fly at half staff on Friday to honor a Navy Seal with local ties.

Governor Snyder ordered the flag lowering for Senior Chief Petty Officer Heath Robinson, originally from Petoskey.

Robinson was one of 30 American military members killed when a Chinook Helicopter was shot down by insurgents in Afghanistan on August 6th.

Robinson graduated from Petoskey High School in 1995 and left behind a wife and a daughter.

Governor Snyder says his sacrifice and service for our nation will not be forgotten.
