For Arizona Only
Governor Doug Ducey has ordered that flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff from sunrise until sunset Wednesday, August 22 in honor of Chief Warrant Officer 3 Taylor J. Galvin, an Arizona native, who passed away on Monday from injuries he received when his helicopter crashed in Sinjar, Iraq. Flags will also be lowered on the day of internment, which has not been set.
The Governor released the following statement: "We mourn the loss of one of our brave soldiers, Chief Warrant Officer Galvin today. He made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of his country, and we are forever grateful. In honor of his service to our country, I've ordered flags at all state buildings be lowered to half-staff from sunrise until sunset on Wednesday, August 22, 2018."
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.
