Postal Service facilities should fly the U.S. flag at half-staff to honor U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, who has died.
Cummings served as chairman of the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform.
Flags should be flown at half-staff until sunset Friday, Oct. 18.
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.
