Wisconsin honors Beaver Dam soldier


MADISON (WKOW) -- Flags will fly at half-staff on Thursday, Dec. 9, at National Guard armories, air bases and other facilities, in honor of U.S. Army private Jacob Gassen.

Gassen, of Beaver Dam, was one of six U.S. soldiers killed in a Nov. 29 attack in Afghanistan.

According to his father, Gassen, who was in his first tour of duty in Afghanistan, turned 21 ten days before his death, and was planning to come home for a visit in January. He was a 2008 graduate of Beaver Dam High School.
