Does anyone know why the flags are at half mast today?

I tried googling it, and even called the school, I was curious if anyone knew why the flags were at half mast today? Thanks!

  • By order of the Governor, all flags at all State and government offices will be flown at half-staff, in Ozark County only, from Monday, June 20, 2011, until dusk on Sunday, June 26, 2011 in memory of Private First Class Matthew Joseph England who died while serving his country in Iraq.

    Also, by order of the Governor, all flags at all government buildings statewide will be flown at half-staff for one full day on Monday, June 20, 2011, from sunrise until sunset in memory of Private First Class Matthew Joseph England

  • I thought all of the flags in MO were still at half mast because of the Joplin tornado. Maybe that is just in our area.
