Fallen S.F. soldier honored 

Flags were flying at half-staff at the state Capitol in Sacramento to honor a San Francisco soldier who died Christmas Day.

Army Sgt. David H. Gutierrez, 35, was killed by an improvised explosive device near the base in Kandahar, Afghanistan. Gutierrez was the third soldier to call San Francisco home who has been killed in Iraq or Afghanistan since 2001, according to a database kept by the Los Angeles Times. That database includes 573 Californians who have died in action during that time.

His death was announced Sunday, details of which can be found in this article.

Army Pvt. Keith J. Moore, 28, (Oct. 14, 2006) and Cpl. Christopher D. Rose, 21, (June 29, 2006) are the other soldiers from San Francisco who have been killed in action.
