Governor’s Proclamation

I hereby order all flags flown in the
State of Montana to be displayed at half-staff on Saturday, May 28th, 2016 until noon on Monday, May 30th, 2016 and then raised to full-staff in honor of Memorial Day.

On this day, we mourn the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect the freedoms and liberties we cherish. Though we are in mourning, at noon the flag is raised to full-staff to honor the heroes still among us and symbolize that we are a living nation—resilient when faced with loss.

Dated this 27th day of May, 2016.
