I hereby direct that Washington state and United States flags at all state agency facilities be lowered to half-staff on Thursday, July 9, 2009, in memory of U.S. Army Private Aaron Fairbairn, 21, of Aberdeen, who died on July 4, in Afghanistan, from injuries sustained from a truck bombing.

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.
