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, March 29, 2011, in memory of U.S. Army Corporal Brandon S. Hocking, 24, of Seattle, who died March 21 of injuries sustained when an improvised explosive device detonated near his military vehicle in Iraq.

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, March 30.

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.
