US VIRGIN ISLANDS –– During Monday’s Government House Weekly Press briefing, Governor Albert Bryan Jr. ordered that all U.S. flags in the Territory fly at half-staff in Memory of former Senator and humanitarian Edgar M. Iles.
“As a veteran of the Korean War, former four-term senator, Rotarian, and 40-year employee of the Government of the Virgin Islands, there is no question that service was senator Iles’ calling. His life and his many contributions to our community are a true telling of what it means to be a humanitarian,” Governor Bryan said during the weekly briefing on Monday.
All flags should be flown half-staff all day until sunset.
Please ensure that any American flags being flown at the workplace are properly raised fully, then lowered immediately to half-staff from sunrise until sunset.
All flags being flown outdoors must be lowered at the end of the day/sunset unless the flagpoles are properly lit at night.
