Flags To Fly At Half Staff For Fallen Kansas Soldier
09/16/2010
 

Governor Mark Parkinson has directed flags to be flown at half-staff throughout Kansas from sunup to sundown tomorrow, September 17, in honor of Captain Jason T. McMahon of Mulvane.

“On behalf of all Kansans, our thoughts and prayers go out to Captain McMahon’s loved ones during this difficult time,” said Parkinson. “His service to our state and to our country was immeasurable, and his ultimate sacrifice will never be forgotten.”

Capt. McMahon, 35, died September 5 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in Bagram, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered when insurgents attacked his unit with indirect fire in Jalalabad. He was assigned to the 184th Ordnance Battalion (Explosive Ordnance Disposal), 52nd Ordnance Group, Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

Capt. McMahon is survived by his wife, Jennifer, and his daughters, Trinity, McKenzie and Azlyn, as well as his parents and brother.

Since 2007, national policy has allowed the flags of the United States and the State of Kansas to be displayed at half-staff throughout the state when a member of the Kansas National Guard or Kansas Air National Guard is killed in the line of duty, or when a Kansas resident serving as a member of the United States Armed Forces is killed in the line of duty. In each instance, the governor will designate the date for flags to fly at half-staff.
