Flags Fly at Half-Staff to Remember 9/11

SALEM, Ore. – Governor John Kitzhaber has ordered all flags at public institutions throughout Oregon be flown at half-staff Wednesday in remembrance of the events of September 11, 2001.

“We pay tribute to those who lost their lives in the attacks on September 11, 2001, and honor the men and women who serve and protect our nation today,” Governor Kitzhaber said. “We continue to face challenges as a state and as a nation, but today we are reminded of the shared values that give us strength, resolve, and determination.”

The order by Governor Kitzhaber follows President Barack Obama’s Presidential Proclamation.
