TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Flags will be lowered throughout Kansas on Tuesday as a soldier from Johnson County is buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

Army Sgt. Michael J. Knapp, of Overland Park, was killed May 18 during his third tour of duty in Afghanistan. The 28-year-old graduate of Shawnee Mission North High School had become a father last year when his wife, Abby, gave birth to a girl.

Knapp was a member of the 1st Battalion (Air Assault), 377th Field Artillery Regiment, 17th Fires Brigade based out of Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington.

Gov. Sam Brownback ordered that flags be flown Tuesday at half-staff from sun-up to sundown.
