Gov. John Kasich has ordered flags at the Capitol and other state facilities in central Ohio to be flown at half-staff on Monday in honor of three Ohio soldiers killed in Afghanistan.
In a Friday statement, the governor also offered his condolences to the soldiers' families and friends.
The Department of Defense has identified the soldiers as 36-year-old Capt. Nicholas Rozanski of Dublin; 45-year-old Sgt. 1st
Class Jeffrey Rieck of Columbus; and 44-year-old Sgt. 1st Class Shawn Hannon of Grove City.
The soldiers were killed in an attack by a suicide bomber on a motorcycle Wednesday in Maimanah, the capital of Faryab province.
At least 13 people died.
The soldiers were from the Ohio National Guard's 37th Infantry Brigade Combat Team.
