Posted: Updated:

Flags in Iowa will fly at half-staff this weekend to honor a WWII airman who will finally be laid to rest after being missing for 70 years.

Governor Terry Branstad has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff in Iowa from 5:00 p.m., Friday, April 11, 2014, until 8:00 a.m. Monday, April 14, 2014, in honor of U.S. Army Air Corps 1st Lt. Louis L. Longman, formerly of Clinton, Iowa.

Flags will be at half-staff on the State Capitol Building; on flags displayed in the Capitol Complex; and on all public buildings, grounds, and facilities throughout the state.

Individuals, businesses, schools, municipalities, counties and other government subdivisions are encouraged to fly the flag at half-staff for the same length of time as a sign of respect.
