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 Tuesday, December 1, 2009, in memory of U.S. Army Staff
Sergeant John J. Cleaver, 36, of Marysville, who died November
19 in Afghanistan, of injuries sustained when a suicide bomber
attacked his unit.
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 Tuesday, or first thing Wednesday 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.
