The Marshall County Commissioners, Kevin Overmyer, Stan Klotz and Mike Burroughs have made the decision to lower the flags at county owned properties to half-staff in honor of those service members that lost their lives on Thursday in Kabul.

The County Commissioners spoke with the county’s Veterans Service Officer Pam Schweizer-Betz and then made the decision as the Executive Branch of government. Flags will remain lowered through the weekend unless there is a directive from the President or Governor that extends the time period.
