Flags in Southborough and across the state are flying at half staff until sunset today, August 19, 2016. This time it is in honor of a fallen soldier from long ago, finally returning home to be laid to rest.

Corporal Ronald Morh Sparks of Cambridge was killed in 1951 as an American Prisoner of War in Korea. His remains were recently identified. You can read the story here.
