MARSHFIELD (AP) — Flags are flying at half-staff at state buildings and military installations to honor a Wisconsin Air National Guard member who died in a fatal fall in Japan.
A funeral service will be held Wednesday in Marshfield for Airman 1st Class Kelly Tomfohrde. The 22-year-old guard member was deployed to Japan with Madison’s 115th Fighter Wing. She died April 5 when she fell from a fifth-story window in Okinawa. The Air Force says her death is under investigation.
