AUGUSTA, Maine — The death of a former Maine soldier from Gorham is prompting the governor to order state flags to be flown at half-staff in the southern Maine town.
Gov. Paul LePage has directed that the state of Maine flag be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset in Gorham on Wednesday in remembrance of Durward Benjamin ‘Ben’ Worster, who died a week ago at Frye’s Leap on Sebago Lake.
Worster attended Gorham High School, and later was awarded numerous honors and medals during his Army tour in Iraq. After his discharge, Worster was as an officer at the Maine Correctional Center in Windham.
