                Proclamation 10351 of March 23, 2022

                
Death of Madeleine Korbel Albright

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Madeleine Albright was a force. She defied convention 
                and broke barriers again and again. She was an 
                immigrant fleeing persecution. A refugee in need of 
                safe haven. And like so many before her--and after--she 
                was proudly American.

                As the devoted mother of three beloved daughters, she 
                worked tirelessly raising them while earning her 
                doctorate degree and starting her career in American 
                diplomacy. She took her talents first to the Senate as 
                a staffer for Senator Edmund Muskie followed by the 
                National Security Council under President Carter. And 
                then to the United Nations where she served as United 
                States Ambassador, and ultimately, made history as our 
                first woman Secretary of State, appointed by President 
                Clinton. A scholar, teacher, bestselling author, and 
                later accomplished business woman, she always believed 
                America was the indispensable Nation, and inspired the 
                next generation of public servants to follow her lead, 
                including countless women leaders around the world. 
                Madeleine was always a force for goodness, grace, and 
                decency--and for freedom.

                As a mark of respect for former Secretary of State 
                Madeleine Korbel Albright and her life of service to 
                our Nation, I hereby order, by the authority vested in 
                me as President of the United States by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, 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 on March 27, 2022. 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.
