Honoring Patriots on Patriots' Day

Let us remember that patriots come in all ages and at innocent moments.

Governor Jay Inslee has directed that flags at all Washington State agency facilities be lowered to half-staff beginning today, April 16, as per President Obama’s proclamation as a mark of respect for the victims of yesterday’s tragic events in Boston, Mass.

Flags should remain at half-staff until sunset/close of business on Saturday, April 20. Other government entities, citizens and businesses are encouraged to join this recognition.
