Half-Staff Alert for January 17, 2017
For Arizona
Only

Governor Ducey has ordered flags at all state buildings be lowered to half-staff on Tuesday, January 17th, for the interment of Congressional Medal of Honor recipient Lance Corporal Jose F. "Jojo" Jimenez.

Lance Corporal Jimenez was killed in action in Vietnam for actions that earned him the Congressional Medal of Honor. Originally buried in Mexico, his remains will be moved to Arizona and he will be interred next to his mother. His family had settled in Arizona after coming to the United States when he was a young child. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 1968 and received the Congressional Medal of Honor posthumously for his indomitable courage, aggressive fighting spirit and unfaltering devotion to duty, which upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and of the United States Naval Service.

Businesses, individuals, and other organizations are encouraged to participate in this tribute.
