I hereby direct that Washington state and United States flags at all state agency facilities be lowered to half-staff on Tuesday, February 3, 2009, in memory of U.S. Army Chief Warrant Officer Benjamin H. Todd of Colville who was killed on January 26, while flying one of two helicopters that crashed in the Tamim Province of northern Iraq.

Please notify your staff and all of your field offices and facilities around the state.

Flags should remain at half-staff until sunset Tuesday or first thing Wednesday morning, February 4.

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.
