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 Wednesday, July 1, 2009, in memory of U.S. Army First
Lieutenant Brian N. Bradshaw, 24, of Steilacoom, who died on
June 25, in Kheyl, Afghanistan, from injuries sustained from
the detonation of an improvised explosive device.
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 Wednesday, or first thing Thursday morning.
Other government entities, citizens and businesses are
encouraged to join this recognition.
Please call (360) 902-0383 if you have any questions
