Governor Doug Ducey has ordered flags at all state buildings to remain lowered from sunrise to sunset Dec. 12, to honor the life of Staff Sergeant Maximo A. Flores of Litchfield Park. Staff Sergeant Flores’ death was confirmed following a midair collision involving a Marine refueling aircraft and a fighter jet last week off the coast of Japan. Flags will also be lowered on the day of interment, which has not been set.
“The hearts of Arizonans are heavy today after hearing of the loss of Staff Sergeant Maximo Flores,” said Governor Ducey. “My prayers go out to his family and loved ones as they mourn during this difficult time. Arizona is grateful for Staff Sergeant Flores’ service and dedication to defending our country. In honor of his life and service, I’ve ordered flags at all state buildings be lowered to half-staff.”
The flags are currently at half-staff until sunset Dec. 30 to honor the passing of former President George H.W. Bush.
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.
