Governor Chris Gregoire is deeply saddened with the death of U.S. Army Private First Class Jarrod A. Lallier, 20, of Spokane, and directs that Washington State and United States flags at all Washington State agency facilities be lowered to half-staff in his memory Monday, July 2, 2012. He died June 18 in Afghanistan of injuries he sustained when his patrol received small arms fire.
Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business Monday, July 2, or first thing Tuesday morning, July 3.
Other government entities, citizens and businesses are encouraged to join this recognition.
A memorial service for Pfc. Lallier is scheduled at 1:00 pm on July 2 at the Life Center in Spokane.
