Dear Editor:

Apparently the word has not been adequately sent out regarding the passing of our 41st President George H. W. Bush. As I traveled from Orofino to Lewiston on Monday, I noticed many flags, to include Orofino’s big flag by the Orofino bridge which were still at full-staff. 

I have attached the Presidential Proclamation directing U.S. Flags to half-staff and appointing Wednesday, December 5 as a National Day of Mourning in Mr. Bush’s honor.  

“NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, in honor and tribute to the memory of President George H.W. Bush, and as an expression of public sorrow, do hereby direct that the flag of the United States be displayed at half-staff at the White House and on all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions for a period of 30 days from the day of his death. I also direct that, for the same length of time, the representatives of the United States in foreign countries shall make similar arrangements for the display of the flag at half-staff over their embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.....”

DONALD J. TRUMP
