Flags to fly at half-staff on May 15

U.S. and Oklahoma flags will be flown at half-staff on Sunday, May 15 in observance of Peace Officers' Memorial Day. President Barack Obama is expected to sign a proclamation ordering flags to be flown at half-staff nationwide.

In 1994, a federal law was enacted encouraging the American flag to be lowered to half-staff every May 15 in remembrance of the more than 19,000 law enforcement officers who have sacrificed their lives in the line of duty to their fellow citizens.
