For Maryland Only
This is to advise that Governor Larry Hogan ordered the United States Flag and Maryland State Flag be lowered to half-staff effective immediately and returned to full-staff at sunset, Saturday, July 14, 2018. This action is in honor of Lieutenant Milton Roach of Spring Grove Hospital Center Police Department, who died in the line of duty on Wednesday, July 4, 2018.
**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.
