Governor Pat McCrory ordered all United States and North Carolina flags lowered to half-staff on all state facilities from sunrise to sunset on Sunday, September 11 in remembrance of Patriot Day.
“The images we remember most from September 11, 2001 are of the heroes that rushed into burning buildings and did everything they could to help their neighbors, friends and colleagues,” said Governor McCrory. “It’s first responders who I especially want to recognize on the anniversary of 9/11. We will never stop supporting and protecting those who protect us.”
