American Flag Half-Staff Early Alert: Tuesday, Sept. 11th 2018, Sunrise to Sunset
Patriot Day, Honoring Sept. 11, 2001 Victims
Traditionally, President Trump will issue a proclamation directing U.S. flags to be flown at half-staff as a mark of respect for those who died during the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
The official proclamation will be posted at: Proclamation
17 years ago a senseless act of terrorism killed 2,996 innocent victims including 343 firefighters and 72 law enforcement officers. Over 6000 people were injured. Lowering the flag to half-staff is a visual reminder of our unity. On Patriot Day we reaffirm the spirit of patriotism, service and community that we felt in those days and months that followed the attack. It's the perfect time to consider volunteering in activities that will enrich our lives and strengthen our nation. Please pass this along to others.
SPECIAL NOTE: President Trump did issue a half-staff proclamation honoring the life of Sen. John McCain. The official proclamation can be read at: Proclamation
