MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Governor Bob Riley has ordered flags be flown at half-staff on state buildings Tuesday in commemoration of the 6th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
In 2001, President Bush proclaimed September 11th "Patriot Day" and ordered flags on all federal buildings lowered.
Riley, in a statement today, is also encouraging all local governments and schools to lower U.S. flags on their buildings.
