A soldier from western New York was killed in Afghanistan last week, the Department of Defense reported.

Pfc. Theodore M. Glende, 23, of Rochester, died July 27, 2012, when enemy forces attacked his unit in Kharwar, in Logar province, the Pentagon said.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered U.S. and state flags on state government buildings to be flown at half-staff on August 2 in Glende's honor.

"I join with all New Yorkers in mourning the loss of Private Glende and I send my deepest sympathies to his family, friends, and fellow soldiers," Cuomo said. "We will honor the service of this young soldier and we will be forever grateful for his dedication to our nation." 

Glende was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, based in Vicenza, Italy.
