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 Tuesday, December 1, 2009, in memory of U.S. Army Staff Sergeant John J. Cleaver, 36, of Marysville, who died November 19 in Afghanistan, of injuries sustained when a suicide bomber attacked his unit.

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 Tuesday, or first thing Wednesday 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.
