Flags at half-staff today

The U.S. Flag is flown at half-staff today, Peace Officers Memorial Day, to honor fallen law-enforcement officers.

Fresh to us are the deaths of two Hattiesburg, Mississippi, police officers, the NYPD officers, an Idaho officer and others who have been murdered in the past month.

Pause today and reflect on the duty and service provided by law-enforcement officers. They go to work every day to protect and to serve. We want them to return to their homes safely every day.
