Postal facilities should fly the flag at half staff to honor US Supreme court associate justice, John Paul Stevens

Flag notice. All Postal Service facilities should fly the U.S. flag at half-staff Tuesday, July 23, to honor John Paul Stevens, a retired U.S. Supreme Court associate justice who died this week.

July 23 will be the day of Stevens’ interment.

To fly the flag at half-staff, hoist the flag to the peak for an instant and then lower it to the half-staff position. The flag should be raised to the peak again before it’s lowered for the day.

For additional information, refer to the Postal Service’s Administrative Support Manual, which explains the organization’s guidelines on U.S. flag display and maintenance.
