IMG_8405-2FRANKFORT, Ky. – Governor Steve Beshear has directed that flags at all state office buildings be displayed at half-staff from sunrise until noon on Monday, May 26, 2014, in observance of Memorial Day.

“Memorial Day is a time for Kentuckians and all Americans to honor the servicemen and women who sacrificed their lives for our freedoms,” said Gov. Beshear. “On Monday, I encourage you to take a moment to give thanks for our military members who made the ultimate sacrifice and also recognize those who are still serving our country both at home and abroad.”

Gov. Beshear encourages individuals, businesses, organizations and government agencies to join in this flag-lowering tribute.
