Lowering of the Washington State and United States Flags


I hereby direct that Washington State and United States flags at all state agency facilities be lowered to half-staff on Wednesday, November 4, 2009, in memory of U.S. Army Chief Warrant Officer Three Niall D. Lyons, 40, of Spokane, who died October 26 in Afghanistan, of injuries sustained when his helicopter crashed.

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

Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business on Wednesday, or first thing Thursday morning.

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.
