Lowering Of NC Flags In Honor Of 11 Servicemen Involved In Deadly Helicopter Crash

Governor Pat McCrory ordered all United States and North Carolina flags at state facilities to be lowered to half-staff from sunrise on Friday, March 13 until sunset on Sunday, March 15, 2015. Flags are to be lowered in honor of the eleven servicemen involved in a deadly helicopter crash, seven of which were US Marines based at North Carolina’s Camp Lejeune.

“This tragedy is a somber reminder of the daily risks and dangers the men and women of our military assume in the defense of our freedom,” Governor McCrory said. “Ann and I will be praying for the families of the fallen and the men and women of Camp Lejeune and the Louisiana National Guard.”
