President Obama has ordered flags flown at half-staff to honor retired astronaut and U.S. Sen. John Glenn, who died Dec. 8.
Flags should be flown at half-staff until sunset on the day of interment, which has not been announced. Link will share additional information when it becomes available.
To fly the flag at half-staff, hoist the flag to the peak for an instant and then lower it to the half-staff position. The flag should be raised to the peak again before it’s lowered for the day.
