From the guv’s office:

Governor Chris Gregoire has directed flags at all Washington State agencies lowered to half-staff on Monday, March 1, 2010, in memory of U. S. Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Eric L. Ward, 19, of Redmond, who was killed in Afghanistan on February 21.

Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business on Monday, or until first thing Tuesday morning, March 2.

UPDATE: Got this today:

Governor Chris Gregoire has directed that flags at all Washington State agency facilities be lowered to half-staff Tuesday, March 2, in memory of Specialist William C. Spencer who died of injuries he suffered in Iraq on February 20. Specialist Spencer was assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Battery, 2nd Battalion, 146th Field Artillery, Army National Guard, Olympia.
