Flags to fly at half-staff in honor of Arizona Sen. John McCain

MEDIA RELEASE

HONOLULU – At the direction of the President of the United States, Gov. David Ige has ordered that the United States flag and the Hawai‘i state flag will be flown at half-staff at the State Capitol and upon all state offices and agencies as well as the Hawai‘i National Guard in the State of Hawai‘i, until sunset on ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­the day of interment (Sunday, Sept. 2). This action is a mark of respect for the memory and longstanding service of Sen. John McCain.

“Sen. McCain was a rare and courageous American who was a true leader and public servant – in both times of war and peace. He always put country before politics. Hawai‘i sends its aloha and condolences to the McCain ‘ohana,” Gov. Ige said.
