PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Gov. Dennis Daugaard is asking residents to fly the U.S. and South Dakota flags at half-staff in observance of Memorial Day.

His proclamation is in accordance with one signed by President Barack Obama.

Flags are to be flown at half-staff from 8 a.m. until noon and at full-staff from noon until sunset.

Daugaard also is asking state residents to observe the president’s request that Americans unite in prayer at 11 a.m. local time and that a moment of silence be observed at 3 p.m. for the National Moment of Remembrance.
