JACKSON, Wyo. — Governor Mark Gordon ordered both the United States and Wyoming state flags to be flown at half staff until midnight at the Capitol and in Teton County in honor of the return to Wyoming of Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum. McCollum was killed in the terrorist attack on Aug. 26, 2021, in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Gordon also ordered flags statewide to be flown at half-staff statewide on Saturday, Sept. 11 to honor and pay our respects to the individuals who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001. The flag will be lowered to half-staff beginning tonight at midnight and return to full staff at midnight Saturday night.
