Fallin orders U.S, Oklahoma flags on state property to fly at half-staff for McCain

Ponca City Now - August 27, 2018 3:11 pm

OKLAHOMA CITY – Gov. Mary Fallin today directed all American and Oklahoma flags on state property to fly at half-staff to honor the life of U.S. Sen. John McCain. The flags will be flown at half-staff through 8 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 4.

The governor issued this statement on the passing of McCain, who served as a U.S. senator from Arizona from 1987 until his death, previously served two terms in the U.S. House of Representatives, and was the Republican nominee for president in 2008:

“John McCain never wavered in his devotion to our country, and was a man of great courage and conviction. He indeed was an American hero. He spoke the truth no matter the cost, and will be remembered for his sound judgment, strength of character and fair-mindedness. During his tenure on Capitol Hill, he defended democracy and freedom, and was known as a maverick. He will be missed. Our prayers are with his family and friends.”
