FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) -- The U.S. Army says a soldier based at Fort Campbell, Ky., has been killed in Afghanistan.

The Army says 20-year-old Pfc. Patricia L. Horne of Greenwood, Miss., died Aug. 24 in Bagram, Afghanistan. She was assigned to the 96th Aviation Support Battalion, 101st Combat Aviation Brigade, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault).

The military did not immediately release a cause of death.

Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear will order that flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff from sunrise to sunset on the day of Pfc. Horne’s interment for which arrangements are still pending.
