Friday will be a somber day for an Algona family who lost their soldier in Afghanistan.
23-year-old sergeant, Joseph Richardson, was killed on November, 16th. Officials say Richardson was on patrol when enemy forces attacked his unit with explosives and gun fire.
Richardson’s visitation is Friday from 5P.M. to 8P.M. at the Oakcrest funeral home in Algona. His funeral service is on Saturday at St. Cecelia Catholic Church at 10:30A.M.
Flags will be lowered to half-staff Friday evening through Monday morning in Richardson’s honor.
