Linde`s funeral will be held Tuesday in Sidney, Montana.
"Today, North Dakotans from all across the state will unite to honor one of our own for his valiant service and selfless sacrifice," Dalrymple said. "Sgt. 1st Class Darren Linde represents the best of our state and nation, and symbolizes the true meaning of an American hero. We will always remember and honor him for the sacrifice he made, and our thoughts and prayers will be with his family as they mourn the loss of their loved one. We lower the flags to express our respect and gratitude to Sgt. 1st Class Linde and all those who have laid down their lives so that we can live ours in peace and prosperity."
The funeral for Specialist Tyler Orgaard of Bismarck, who was also killed, will be held Thursday at 10:30 at Corpus Christi Church in Bismarck.
