Post office flags at half-staff through July 25

As a symbol of respect for the victims of the acts of violence Friday in Aurora, CO, President Obama has ordered that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at all government installations — including postal facilities — throughout the U.S and its Territories and possessions. The flag should remain at half-staff until sunset, July 25, 2012.

When flown 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.
