Flags in OH to fly at half-staff for Memorial Day

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) has ordered all flags be flown at half-staff on Memorial Day in honor of those who gave their lives in service to the United States.

The governor’s Memorial Day resolution says the flags shall be flown at half-staff on all public buildings and grounds in Ohio from sunrise until noon on Monday.

The resolution encourages all Ohioans to mark the day appropriately to remember the sacrifice of the men and women who have served their country. It also urges Ohioans to show gratitude to all those who wear the uniform of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard.
