Lowered Flags Honor Border Patrol Agent

Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2012

Utah Gov. Gary R. Herbert authorized the lowering of the flag of the United States of America and the Utah state flag Thursday, Oct. 11, in honor of slain Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivie, a native of Utah.


The flags should fly at half-staff at all state facilities from sunrise to sunset Oct. 11, the date of Agent Ivie’s memorial service.


The service is open to the public and begins at 11 a.m. at the UCCU Events Center at Utah Valley University in Orem.


Gov. Herbert issued the following statement:


The State of Utah mourns the loss of one of her brave sons. Nicholas Ivie chose a life of service and sacrifice, even at great personal risk. On behalf of all Utahns, Jeannette and I extend our heartfelt appreciation for his dedication. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and family of Nicholas.
