For Wisconsin Only
Today, Governor Walker issued Executive Order #294, ordering the flags half-staff in honor of Officer Charles Irvine Jr. of the Milwaukee Police Department, who lost his life in the line of duty.
In accordance with the order, please ensure that the flag of the United States and the flag of the State of Wisconsin are flown at half-staff at all state facilities beginning immediately and ending at sunset on the date of interment.
**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.
