Flags Not Displayed at Half-staff

There were several places about east Omaha where the flags were not flown at half-staff as they should have been in respect to veterans on Memorial Day.

One of the primary companies noted had three places where the flags had not been lowered.

First National Bank, on the west side

First National Bank Tower

First National Bank, atop the building

KETV Television Center

Midtown Crossing, flying properly at half-staff

Nebraska Medical Center

VFW Building along 24th Street

It was a moist morning with passing fog clouds after the overnight rains.

There were more flags flying at half-staff this year than last, on this important holiday. In particular at the Union Pacific Center and Omaha/Douglas Civic Center.
