Flags at half-staff on Tuesday, July 26, 2011

Monday, July 25, 2011

Governor Chris Gregoire has directed that Washington State and United States flags at all Washington State agency facilities be lowered to half-staff Tuesday, July 26, 2011, in memory of U. S. Army Sergeant Wyatt A. Goldsmith, 28, of Colville, who died July 15 of injuries sustained in Afghanistan when his patrol received rocket-propelled grenade fire.

Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business Tuesday, or first thing Wednesday morning, July 27.

Other government entities, citizens and businesses are encouraged to join this recognition.

A memorial service will be at 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Colville.
