Gov. Chris Gregoire has directed that flags at all state agency buildings be lowered to half-staff Monday in memory of U.S. Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Eric L. Ward of Redmond. Ward was killed this week while serving in Afghanistan.
Flags should remain at half-staff until the close of business Monday or first thing Tuesday morning.
Other government entities, residents and businesses may join in the recognition.
