If you were wondering why flags were at half-staff today, it’s because it was in memory of Sgt. Drew Scobie of Kailua.
His memorial service was held this morning. He was a Hawaii national guard soldier, and he died last month when the surveillance aircraft he was in went down in Afghanistan.
Scobie is survived by his wife and son, and a child on the way.
He was 25 years old.
