Flag Status

Flags are at half-staff today.

In coordination with the Presidential proclamation, Governor Ducey has ordered flags at all state buildings remain at half-staff until sunset Sunday, December 30, 2018, to honor the life of President George H.W. Bush, the 41st President of the United States, who passed away on Friday, Nov 30 at the age of 94.

 

Governor Doug Ducey released the following statement on the passing of former President George H.W. Bush:

 

“Arizona and America mourn the loss this morning of President George H.W. Bush.

 

“Through his life of service, President Bush, #41, made America a better nation, from World War II to the White House.

 

“He brought experienced, principled leadership to the presidency. His significant foreign policy achievements include helping bring an end to the Cold War and freedom to Eastern Europe, leading the coalition that turned back Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait, and ushering in new agreements for the reduction of nuclear weapons. It can undoubtedly be said that his time in office saw the world become a safer, more stable place.

 

“Before being elected president, President Bush had lived a full life of devoted service to our nation that included serving as vice president, CIA director, a member of Congress, Ambassador to the United Nations, and as a decorated Navy pilot in World War II. He continued to serve after leaving office, taking on the role of an American ambassador of goodwill during times of need. His compassion, sense of humor and love for our nation are qualities Americans of all ages enjoyed in the years following his presidency.

 

“Among his many accomplishments, President Bush will also be remembered as the last World War II veteran to serve as president.

 

“It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to George H.W. Bush – a president, a veteran, a father, grandfather and great-grandfather -- an American patriot.”

 

Individuals, businesses, and other organizations are encouraged to join in this tribute.
