Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has directed that flags on state government buildings—including those at UB—be flown at half-mast on Sept. 18 in honor of the victims of the Washington Navy Yard. The flags will be flown at half-staff until sunset on Sept. 20.
“I join all Americans in mourning the 12 innocent lives lost during the tragic and senseless attack at the Washington Navy Yard,” Cuomo said. “On behalf of all New Yorkers, I extend my deepest sympathy to the families of the victims.”
