I support the soldiers but I wish there was a better way to honor them than putting the flags at half staff. I think if I was a soldier I would prefer the flags flying high and proud.

It's to symbolize the "flag of death" that has claimed the person being honored: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Half-staff

It is a time honored tradition to honor those who gave their lives. Very appropriate and I thank our governor for the proclamation. My sympathies to SPC McWilliams family and friends.
