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 Thursday, April 15, 2010, in memory of U.S. Army Specialist Joseph T. Caron, 21, of Tacoma, who died April 11 in Afghanistan, of injuries he sustained when an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle.

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, April 15, or first thing Friday morning, April 16.

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.
