Flags at half-staff for US service members, terrorist attack victims

Aug. 27. Gov. Roy Cooper ordered all United States and North Carolina flags at state facilities to be lowered to half-staff immediately until sunset, Monday, Aug. 30 to honor the US service members and other victims who died in the terrorist attack on August 26 in Kabul, Afghanistan. At least 13 US service members and dozens of Afghans were killed in an attack outside Kabul’s airport. Individuals, businesses, schools, municipalities, counties and other government subdivisions are also encouraged to fly flags at half-staff.
