Obama Orders Flags Flown At Half-Staff For Specter

October 15, 2012
American flags at the White House and public, federal government buildings will be flown at half-staff to honor Sen. Arlen Specter, who died Sunday.

President Barack Obama issued the proclamation today, ordering that the flags will be flown at half-staff on Specter's day of interment  "as a mark of respect for [his] memory."

Funeral services are scheduled for Tuesday in Pennsylvania.

Specter, a centrist who played a crucial role in the Senate, died at age 82 after a battle with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
