North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum and Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz have directed all government agencies to fly the U-S and state flags at half-staff on Monday – Memorial Day -- until noon… and encouraged state residents to do the same at their homes and businesses, in observance of the holiday.

Flags should be raised to full-staff at noon Monday. The governors’ directives are in accordance with a proclamation issued by the president.

Burgum will pay tribute to fallen veterans with remarks during a virtual Memorial Day ceremony that will be livestreamed at noon Monday on the North Dakota National Guard’s website.
