Half-Staff Alert - September 27th, 2018
For Iowa Only

Gov. Kim Reynolds ordered all flags in Iowa to fly at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Thursday, September 27, 2018, to honor a fallen U.S. Marine.

Lance Corporal John D. Killen III, of Davenport, went missing in action when his helicopter crashed in Vietnam on June 30, 1967. The 18-year-old's remains were identified in March 2017 and returned to the United States for burial, along with the remains of two other Marines also killed in the crash. All three will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia, on Thursday, September 27, 2018. They will receive full military honors.



**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.
