Pence Orders Flags Flown at Half-Staff for Patriot Day

 Gov. Mike Pence has ordered flags across Indiana to be flown at half-staff today in observation of Patriot Day. They should be lowered at sunrise and remain at half-staff until sunset. Congress established the observation in 2001 in memory of the 2,977 people killed in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Individuals and businesses who fly flags are also directed to lower them in observation of the national day of mourning.
