Flags at Half-Staff to Honor Victims of Afghanistan Terrorist Attack
Flags in Montgomery County
will be at half-staff today to honor the victims of yesterday’s terroir attack in Afghanistan that killed 13 U.S. service members and 90 Afghans.
Maryland Governor Larry Hogan released the following statement on the attacks yesterday:
“We are devastated and outraged by the murder of American service members and all who lost their lives in today’s horrific violence. The First Lady and I are praying for their loved ones, and we ask all Marylanders to join us.
“This administration’s decisions have put the lives of thousands of Americans at the mercy of terrorists. We cannot continue to rely on their goodwill.
“The President pledged to get every American out of Afghanistan. I urge him to stay true to his word. We must not leave any Americans behind and risk that they suffer the same fate.”
