The Pentagon has identified the U.S. casualties in the bombing in Syria on Wednesday.

The list includes Navy Chief Cryptologic Technician Shannon Kent -- who grew up in Pine Plains, in Dutchess County. She was based at Fort Meade, Maryland.

Governor Cuomo has directed flags on state buildings to be flown at half staff in her honor. 

He released a statement saying in part "Chief Petty Officer Kent stepped up to serve her country and dedicated herself to a life of service, following in the footsteps of her father Colonel Stephen J. Smith of the State Police. We owe her our eternal gratitude for her selfless dedication and sacrifice. On behalf of all New Yorkers, I extend my deepest sympathies to her family and loved ones."
