In remembrance

U.S. flag at half staff

Postal Service facilities should fly flags at half-staff to honor U.S. Rep. Louise Slaughter, who has died.

Flags should be flown at half-staff from Friday, March 16-Saturday, March 17, at sunset. 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.

For additional information, refer to the Postal Service’s guidelines on U.S. flag display and maintenance.
