(UnitedVoice.com) – President Trump is showing his patriotism and compassion once more. With more than 96,000 American lives lost to COVID-19 as of May 22, the president is planning to honor their memory.
….On Monday, the flags will be at half-staff in honor of the men and women in our Military who have made the Ultimate Sacrifice for our Nation.

The decision to honor those who have fallen to the deadly virus was announced after a request by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). They asked the president to commemorate the day America reached 100,000 deaths due to the coronavirus.
US flags will fly half-mast over the next three days to honor their memory. On Memorial Day, the US flag will continue to fly half-mast as Americans honor the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country.
We salute you all.
