DOVER – President Obama on Tuesday ordered American flags at all government buildings and facilities to be flown at half-staff on Friday, August 31 “as a mark of respect for the memory of Neil Armstrong.” In concurrence with the President’s order and as an expression of Delaware’s respect and admiration for the legacy left behind by Neil Armstrong, Gov. Markell has ordered the American and Delaware flags at state buildings and facilities also be flown at half-staff on Friday, August 31.

With the passing of longtime State representative and former Joint Finance Committee Chair Philip Corrozi on Monday, August 27, Gov. Markell has also ordered the American and Delaware flags at state buildings and facilities to remain at half-staff until the close of business on Wednesday, September 5 as a mark of respect for Representative Corrozi and his many years of service to Delaware.
