STATE OF DELAWARE
Whereas, the people of this State desire to express publicly their deep sorrow at the death of those members of the Armed Services killed in South Viet Nam in the defense of freedom; and
Whereas, the displaying of the Flag of the State of Delaware at half-mast is a most suitable method of expressing the sorrow of the people of this State;
Now, therefore, I, Charles L. Terry, Jr., Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby direct that the Flag of the State of Delaware displayed at Legislative Hall be flown at half-staff from May 15 to May 30, 1968, in commemoration of those persons who have been killed in South Viet Nam to date and that, this flag also be flown at half-staff for one day upon such a death occurring in the future.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I, Charles L. Terry, Jr., Governor of the State of Delaware, have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the said State to be hereunto affixed at Dover this 10th day of May in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and sixty-eight, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and ninety-second.
