☷ Siloam Springs Arkansas - Flags at Half Staff Honoring Madeleine Albright
Siloam Springs , state Arkansas ( By Press Release office)
A Proclamation on the Death of
MARCH 23 , 2022
Madeleine Albright was a force . She defied convention and broke barriers again and again . She was an immigrant fleeing persecution . A refugee in need of safe haven . And like so many before her — and after — she was proudly American .
As the devoted mother of three beloved daughters , she worked tirelessly raising them while earning her doctorate degree and starting her career in American diplomacy . She took her talents first to the Senate as a staffer for Senator Edmund Muskie followed by the National Security Council under President Carter . And then to the United Nations where she served as United States Ambassador , and ultimately , made history as our first woman Secretary of State , appointed by President Clinton . A scholar , teacher , bestselling author , and later accomplished business woman , she always believed America was the indispensable Nation , and inspired the next generation of public servants to follow her lead , including countless women leaders around the world . Madeleine was always a force for goodness , grace , and decency — and for freedom .
As a mark of respect for former Secretary of State Madeleine Korbel Albright and her life of service to our Nation , I hereby order , by the authority vested in me as President of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America , that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half - staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds , at all military posts and naval stations , and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset on March 27 , 2022 . I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half - staff for the same length of time at all United States embassies , legations , consular offices , and other facilities abroad , including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations .
IN WITNESS WHEREOF , I have hereunto set my hand this twenty - third day of March , in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty - two , and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty - sixth .
