Governor Rick Snyder has ordered U.S. and Michigan flags to be lowered to half-staff Wednesday, Aug. 29 through Sunday, Sept. 2, on all state buildings and within the state Capitol complex in honor of U.S. Sen. John McCain, who died Saturday, Aug. 25.

According to WILX-TV 10, the flags will be lowered beginning Wednesday with a public viewing in Arizona, until Sunday when he will be laid to rest following a private service in Maryland.

"Sen. John McCain made an incredible, positive impact on our country and on all who call it home.  He was a hero and public servant who worked each and every day to make this country better.  Sen. McCain will be remembered for his service to the American people, both as an elected official and a military member," Snyder said.
