Louis Michael Bonacasa
Flags on state government buildings be flown at half-staff again today, this time in honor of a second New York Air National Guard member who died in Afghanistan Monday.

Staff Sgt. Louis Michael Bonacasa died of wounds suffered when his patrol was attacked by a suicide bomber. Also among those killed in the attack was Technical Sgt. Joseph Lemm. Both were members of the 105th Base Defense Squadron, which is an element of the 105th Airlift Wing at Stewart Air National Guard Base at Newburgh. Flags were flown at half-staff on Wednesday in honor of Technical Sgt. Lemm.

“On behalf of all New Yorkers, I extend my deepest sympathies to the family, friends and fellow servicemen of Staff Sgt. Bonacasa,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. “We will join his loved ones in honoring his valor, leadership and service to this great nation. His sacrifice will be remembered with gratitude.”

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