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.
