Special Flag Honors Fallen Fairbanks State Troopers

May 7, 2014

A commercial airliner delivered the United States Honor Flag to Fairbanks yesterday. The flag, which flew at ground zero in New York following the 9-11 terrorist attacks, and has since traveled around the country to honor fallen law enforcement officers and fire fighters, was brought to Fairbanks to pay tribute to Alaska State Trooper Sergeant Patrick “Scott” Johnson and Trooper Gabe Rich, who were killed in Tanana last week.  KUAC’s Dan Bross reports.

The U.S. Honor Flag is delivered to Fairbanks Tuesday.
