Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has directed that flags on state government buildings be flown at half-staff Monday in honor of Lance Cpl. Anthony J. Denier, a Mechanicville Marine who died in Helmand Province, Afghanistan on Sunday.

Denier died while conducting combat operations. He was assigned to 3rd Battalion, 9th Marines, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, which is based at Camp Lejeune, N.C.

"I join with my fellow New Yorkers in mourning the loss of Lance Cpl. Denier,” Cuomo said. “I extend my deepest sympathy to his family, friends and fellow Marines. We will honor his service and sacrifice, and we are grateful for his dedication to our nation."

Cuomo has directed that the flags on all state buildings be lowered to half-staff in honor of and in tribute to New York service members and those stationed in New York who are killed in action or die in a combat zone.
