Flags to Fly at Half-Staff for Patriot Day
Gov. Dave Heineman has announced that flags at all state buildings and facilities will be lowered to half-staff on Wednesday, Sept. 11 in observance of Patriot Day.
The remembrance honors the victims lost in the 2001 terrorist strikes in New York, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania.
Nebraska residents are also encouraged to fly flags at half-staff in recognition of Patriot Day.
