(Salem, OR) — Governor Kate Brown ordered flags at all public institutions throughout Oregon to be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Tuesday, Sept. 11 for Patriot Day.

"Sept. 11, 2001 is a day that each of us will never forget,” said Governor Brown. "Dan and I encourage all Oregonians to take a moment to honor the lives of those lost on that horrific day. We hope their families continue to find love and comfort."

A joint resolution approved 12/18/2001 has designated September 11th of each year as “Patriot Day” which also directs the flags be lowered to half-staff for the entire day on September 11th.
