Fermilab’s flags at half-mast

The flags at Fermilab are lowered to half-staff whenever the president issues a proclamation or executive order requiring such. The flags are also lowered whenever the governor of Illinois issues a proclamation requiring the flag be displayed at half-staff because of the death of a present or former Illinois official or the death of a state citizen while serviing on active duty in the military.

The flags are currently lowered to honor Major Jeffrey Bland of Galesburg, Ill. They will remain at half-staff through the evening of Saturday, Oct. 8.
