DES MOINES– Gov. Kim Reynolds has ordered all flags in Iowa to fly at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Friday, September 17, 2021, to honor fallen Cpl. Daegan William-Tyeler Page of the 2nd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment based at Camp Pendleton, California. Cpl. Page grew up in Red Oak, Iowa and was killed in Afghanistan, along with 12 other U.S. service members, during an attack at the airport in Kabul.
“It’s heroes like Cpl. Daegan William-Tyeler Page that step up to serve this country and make all proud to be an American,” said Gov. Reynolds. “He was a young man who loved his family and cherished his community. I join with Iowans and the nation in honoring the selfless and dedicated service of Cpl. Daegan Page who was taken much too soon. His sacrifice will serve as a constant reminder that the freedoms and liberties we enjoy as a country come at a heavy cost.”
Cpl. Daegan William-Tyeler Page went to high school in Omaha, Nebraska. He will be buried in Omaha with full military honors. He was 23-years-old.
