From Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts:
“Memorial Day is a time to remember the brave women and men who gave their lives so that we can enjoy the peaceful exercise of our freedoms. Susanne, the kids, and I send our condolences to Nebraskans who’ve lost a loved one in the line of duty. They will never be forgotten. We also wish everyone a pleasant holiday weekend with friends and family. As you travel to cookouts, picnics, and pool parties this weekend, be sure to buckle up and drive safely.”
On Friday, May 24, Governor Ricketts ordered all flags to fly at half-staff until noon on Monday, May 27, in honor of Memorial Day.
