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 Tuesday, May 3, 2011, in memory of U.S. Marine Corps Lance Corporal Joe Jackson, 22, of White Swan, who died April 24 of injuries sustained in Afghanistan when an improvised explosive device detonated.

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 Tuesday, or first thing Wednesday morning, May 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.
