Flags at half-staff

gif ad for must read alaska donations

President Joe Biden ordered U.S. flags to be flown at half-staff from Aug. 26 through sunset on Aug. 30 in honor of the victims of the attack on U.S. service members and other victims in the terrorist attack at the Kabul Airport on Aug. 26.

The flags on all federal buildings and grounds, military posts, naval vessels, embassies, consular offices and other places are under this proclamation. Typically, states and municipalities follow suit.

The number of U.S. servicemen who died in the attack has risen to 13.

Donations Welcome

Latest comments

  • Upside-down would be more fitting, given what we have in office currently.

    • That was my very first thought as well!
      Even more appropriate, Pretendent Biden should be flying the Jolly Roger from the flagpole of the White House and Congress, for his blatant piracy and theft of the presidency.

  • Totally unnecessary loss of life due to Biden gross incompetence and criminal negligence.

    Biden should be impeached, but Democrats protect each other regardless of body count.

    Happy America? You voted for this dolt.

  • The Talibans top General, Joseph Biden has handed the United States of America a devastating military loss.

    • Right on, General Joseph TaliBiden. It has a nice ring to it. #Talibiden #dctoughguy #Imgonnagetyou #aftermynap

  • None of this would have happened under Trump. Vote Democrat and kiss your country goodbye.

  • Seeing as how he and his trolls maliciously got them killed, it’s the height of hypocrisy for him to make this gesture. It cheapens it and taints it.

    • Every measure, every policy, every law, EVERTHING done by this current usurper’s administration is patently designed to undermine, destabilize and destroy this country. I am utterly convinced of it, simply because ALL the evidence unequivocally points to it.

    • My thoughts exactly.

  • It’s a little too late for Biden to be remorseful. Biden might feel some pain but his handlers and cohorts feel nothing. To them its the cost of doing business.

  • Honor our soldiers, despise our politicians.

  • Joe Biden: Ready, Fire, Aim.
