Governor Mike Pence is directing flags at state facilities statewide be flown at half-staff Saturday, July 27 in honor of Korean War Veterans Armistice Day.

Governor Pence also asks businesses and residents to lower their flags to half-staff to pay tribute to the brave men and women who have defended our nation and our freedom.

The holiday was established in July 1998, the 45th anniversary of the signing of the treaty that ended the Korean War, which lasted from 1950 through 1953. Then-president Bill Clinton proclaimed July 27 a national day of recognition to commemorate the more than 37,000 U.S. service personnel who lost their lives during the war.
