Gov. Bill Ritter has ordered flags to be lowered to half staff on all state and federal buildings tomorrow, in honor of two fallen Army soldiers: Sgt. Aaron B. Cruttenden, 25, and Spc. Dale J. Kridlo, 33.
Sgt. Cruttenden and Spc. Kridlo were killed in action Nov. 7 when their patrol encountered small arms fire while in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in Kunar Province, Afghanistan.
A funeral service for Sgt. Cruttenden will be held at 2 p.m. on Wednesday at the Hotchkiss Community United Methodist Church in Hotchkiss.
A funeral for Spc. Kridlo will be held Wednesday at St. John Evangelist Church in Pittstown, Penn. Spc. Kridlo's wife and daughters live in Ft. Collins, where the girls also attend school.
