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 Monday, April 5, 2010, in memory of U.S. Army Private First Class James L. Miller, who died March 29, 2010, in Afghanistan, of injuries he suffered when an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle. The 21 year old was born in Alaska, but had most recently lived in Yakima prior to enlisting in the Army.

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 Monday, April 5, or first thing Tuesday morning, April 6.

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.
