DES MOINES, Iowa – All flags in Iowa are ordered to fly at half-staff Saturday to honor a U.S. sailor killed in World War II.

Bernard V. Doyle of Red Cloud, Nebraska, will be buried Saturday at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Lake City. The 19-year-old Doyle was killed in action on December 7, 1941, during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The remains of the Navy Seaman 2nd Class were considered non-recoverable until March 2018. They were returned to his family for burial with full military honors.

All flags should be at half-staff from sunrise to sunset in Iowa on Saturday as a sign of respect.
