I was driving back from work when I noticed the 3d MAW had the colors at half-mast. I never heard anything prominent about anyone yesterday and it certainly wasn't a half-mast holiday. I'm just curious usually. Makes me feel bad to know we lose Marines.

Noticed the same thing here in New York.

I thought so. But I wanted to know if it was a local thing or not. Sometimes when retired Generals that are former Wing or MEF commanders pass away they fly half-mast for it.

Thanks!
