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 Monday, March 1, 2010, in memory of U.S. Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Eric L. Ward, 19, of Redmond, who was killed in Afghanistan on February 21.

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 Monday, March 1, or first thing Tuesday morning, March 2.

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.
