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 Tuesday, December 21, 2010, in memory of U.S. Army Cpl. Sean M. Collins, 25, of Yelm, who died December 12 from wounds received when insurgents attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device in Kandahar province, Afghanistan.

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 Tuesday, or first thing Wednesday morning, December 22.

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.
