Navy SEAL Charlie Keating IV

Governor Ducey has ordered that flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff starting at sunrise on Friday, May 13th, in honor of Navy SEAL Charlie Keating IV, a graduate of Arcadia High School in Phoenix, who was killed last week in an ISIS attack. His funeral will be held Friday in San Diego.


Flags will remain at half-staff through sunset on Sunday, May 15 due to additional orders from Governor Ducey for the interment of Ann Day (Saturday) and National Peace Officers Memorial Day (Sunday). Separate notifications for those events will be sent out Friday.



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