NORTH CAROLINA -

Gov. Pat McCrory has ordered all U.S. and North Carolina flags to be lowered to half-staff on state facilities in recognition of Patriot Day.

The flags will be lowered from from sunrise to sunset on Wednesday, according to McCrory's office.

"The anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks is a stark reminder of the sacrifices made by North Carolina's veterans, military personnel, and first responders to protect our freedom and way of life," said Gov. McCrory. "We are grateful for your willingness to serve at the time of our greatest need."
