NORTH CAROLINA (WAVY) — Governor Roy Cooper has ordered all United States and North Carolina flags at state facilities to be flown at half-staff on Monday until 12 noon in honor of Memorial Day.
The order comes as a tribute to the sacrifices made by the men and women of the armed services.
“This is Memorial Day Weekend, and it’s an important opportunity to honor our men and women in uniform who made the ultimate sacrifice. It’s time to reflect on their contributions and show gratitude to their families. I’m grateful for these heroes who gave everything for our country,” said Cooper in a statement released.
The statement continued, “As a show of respect, individuals, businesses, schools, municipalities, counties, and other government subdivisions are encouraged to fly the flag at half-staff for the duration of time indicated.”
