INDIANAPOLIS (March 28, 2005) ? Governor Mitch Daniels today asked that all flags in Indiana be flown at half-staff until dusk on Friday (April 1) in honor of four Indiana National Guard soldiers who died March 26 in Afghanistan.

The four all were members of the Indianapolis-based 76th Infantry Brigade.

I ask the prayers of every Hoosier for their families as we grieve and await their return home.?
