Flags At Half-Staff Thursday To Honor John Glenn

 

PIERRE, S.D. – The White House has issued a proclamation to honor the life of John Glenn on Thursday, April 6, 2017, the day of his interment.

 

President Trump calls for the flag of the United States to be displayed at half-staff, and he has invited governors of the United States to join in the observance.

 

At the President’s request, Gov. Dennis Daugaard asks that all flags in the state be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Thursday.
