Flags ordered at half-staff for 9-11 anniversary

The Alaska and American flags fly at the State Office Building downtown.

Gov. Sean Parnell has ordered all flags at public facilities be flown at half-staff throughout Alaska on Wednesday in observance of Patriot Day and the National Day of Service and Remembrance.

Wednesday is the anniversary of the 9-11 terrorist attacks. Parnell says that day will live forever in our memories, and it is a day to thank emergency responders, law enforcement and the military.

Flags will remain at half-staff throughout the day, and will be raised to full-staff at sunset.

Also Wednesday, a local ceremony commemorating the 9-11 anniversary will start at 6 p.m. on Berth 4 in downtown Ketchikan.
