Honoring the Victims of the Tragedy in 
                Chattanooga, Tennessee

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Our thoughts and prayers as a Nation are with the 
                service members killed last week in Chattanooga. We 
                honor their service. We offer our gratitude to the 
                police officers and first responders who stopped the 
                rampage and saved lives. We draw strength from yet 
                another American community that has come together with 
                an unmistakable message to those who would try and do 
                us harm: We do not give in to fear. You cannot divide 
                us. And you will not change our way of life.

                We ask God to watch over the fallen, the families, and 
                their communities. As a mark of respect for the victims 
                of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated on July 
                16, 2015, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, by the authority 
                vested in me as President of the United States by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, I hereby order 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, July 25, 
                2015. 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-first day of July, in the year of our Lord two 
                thousand fifteen, and of the Independence of the United 
                States of America the two hundred and fortieth.
