PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Gov. Dennis Daugaard is asking that flags in the state be flown at half-staff Monday morning in observance of fallen military service members.

President Barack Obama has proclaimed Memorial Day as a Day of Prayer for Permanent Peace and has called on governors to request flags at half-staff from 8 a.m. until noon. Flags are to return to full-staff from noon until sunset.

The President has designated the hour beginning at 11 a.m., local time, to unite in prayer. He is also urging Americans to observe a National Moment of Remembrance beginning at 3 p.m. local time.
