Lowering of the Washington State and United States Flags
In support of President Obama's November 6, 2009,
Presidential Proclamation, I hereby direct that Washington
State and United States flags at all state agency facilities
be lowered to half-staff today, in memory of those who lost
their lives at Fort Hood in Texas yesterday.
Please notify your staff and all of your field offices
and facilities around the state.
Flags should remain at half-staff until sunset on
Tuesday, November 10, 2009, and should be at full-staff for
Veterans Day on Wednesday.
Other government entities, citizens and businesses are
encouraged to join this recognition.
Please call (360) 902-0383 if you have any questions
about this flag lowering.
