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, August 16, 2011, in memory of U.S. Army Sergeant Alexander J.

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, August 17.
