Please be advised that Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker has ordered that the United States of America flag and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts flag be lowered to half-staff from sunrise until sunset at all state buildings on Friday, January 11, 2019, the day of interment, in honor of Sergeant First Class Eric Emond, a native of Fall River, Massachusetts, who was killed in Afghanistan on November 27, 2018. SFC Emond will be laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery.
These gubernatorial orders apply to:
1. The main or administration building of each public institution of the Commonwealth, e.g. town and city halls.
2. Other state-owned or state-controlled buildings.
3. All state military installations.
**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.
