Governor Ducey has ordered that flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff from sunrise until sunset Tuesday, September 5, 2017, in honor of US Army Staff Sergeant Emil Rivera-Lopez who died in a helicopter crash off the coast of Yemen. Sergeant Rivera-Lopez was from Tucson.
Flags will also be flown at half-staff on the day of his interment which will be communicated as soon as possible.
Individuals, businesses, and other organizations are encouraged to join in this tribute.
**When flown at half-staff or half-mast, the U.S. flag should be hoisted first to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff or half-mast position. The flag should again be raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day.
