A Nebraska woman wants Gov. Dave Heineman to order the lowering of flags statewide whenever a Nebraskan dies while on military duty.

Lory Storm is encouraging Nebraskans to contact the governor's office and push for changes in the flag policy so that flags are lowered statewide, not just in the soldier's hometown.

Storm says the death of Marine Sgt. Jeremiah Callahan, of
Chadron, who died in a California traffic accident on Feb. 14,
should be honored statewide even if he didn't die in combat
overseas.

A funeral for Callahan is scheduled for Saturday in Chadron.
