SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Governor Huntman's office says flags will be lowered to half-staff from sunrise to sunset tomorrow on state properties in honor of U-S Army Specialist Rocky Payne and Airman First Class Antoine J. Holt.

Payne was killed in the line of duty while serving as a gunner on a Humvee in Baghdad last week.

Holt lost his life in the line of duty at Balad Air Base in Iraq on Easter weekend last year.

A special memorial for Holt has been planned for Friday in Wendover.

Governor Huntsman plans to attend Paynes's funeral services tomorrow at the Garland Tabernacle.
