Hogan Orders Flags at Half-Staff to Honor Maryland National Guardsman

Gov. Larry Hogan has ordered Maryland flags to be lowered to half-staff to honor Sgt. Eddison Hermond of the Maryland National Guard, who died Sunday, May 27. The flags will be raised to full staff at sunset on the day of Hermond’s interment.

Hermond was attempting to help a woman Sunday in Ellicott City, Md. when he was swept up in the rushing flood waters, according to the Howard County Police. He was reported missing and rescuers were searching for Hermond following Sunday’s historic flooding when his body was recovered Tuesday in the Patapsco River.
