Dover – President Obama on Monday ordered American flags at all U.S. government buildings and facilities to be flown at half-staff until sunset on Friday, September 20, 2013, “as a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated on September 16, 2013, at the Washington Navy Yard.”

In concurrence with the President’s order and as an expression of Delaware’s sympathy for the people affected by this tragedy, Gov. Markell has ordered the American and Delaware flags at state buildings and facilities also be flown at half-staff until the end of the day on September 20, 2013.
