I know there are few threads already started for 9/11 and I did not want to take away from those. My flag is out as it usually is, but I thought "should the flag be flown at half mast or full mast tomorrow?" I know there are several members that are either active or retired from the services and wanted to know what is the proper etiquette to honor the victims and heroes of 9/11?

Thank you to all that have and are serving.

Yes, half staff. On Patriots day (sept 11th) by executive order apparently. I didnt serve, but did Google.

Patriot Day, 2008
A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America

"I also call upon the people of the United States to observe Patriot Day with appropriate ceremonies, activities, and remembrance services, to display the flag at half-staff from their homes on that day, and to observe a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 a.m. eastern daylight time to honor the innocent Americans and people from around the world who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001."
