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 Thursday, March 26, 2009, in memory of U.S. Army Private First Class Court D. Haugen, 23, of Wenatchee who died on March 11, when he was struck by a train in Germany. He was on his way back to Ft. Lewis after serving 15 months in Iraq.

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 Thursday, or first thing Friday 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.
