Flags to Half-Staff Until, Saturday, July 25, in Honor of United States
Marines Killed in Chattanooga

CONCORD – President Obama has issued a proclamation ordering the lowering
of flags on all public buildings and grounds to half-staff immediately and
until sunset, Saturday, July 25, in honor of the United States Marines
killed last week in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Governor Maggie Hassan issued the following statement when directing flags
to half-staff on Friday, July 17:

“Our service members, at home and abroad, sacrifice every day in defense
of the freedoms and values that we hold dear. Yesterday’s shootings in
Chattanooga were a senseless act of violence that took four American heroes
from us far too soon. I join Granite Staters and Americans everywhere in
sending our thoughts and prayers to the families and loved ones of the
Marines we lost, as well as those in Chattanooga and communities across the
country as we continue to mourn.”
