Lower flags Monday for Coleman soldier

Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm has ordered U.S. flags throughout the state of Michigan and on Michigan waters lowered for one day on Monday, June 4, in honor of Army Pfc. Casey P. Zylman of Coleman who died May 25 while on active duty in Iraq.
Zylman, 22, died from wounds suffered when an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle in Tallafar, Iraq. He was assigned to the 3rd Squadron, 4th Cavalry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, Schofield Barracks, Hawaii.
Flags should return to full-staff on Tuesday, June 5.
When flown at half-staff or half-mast, the U.S. flag should be hoisted first to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff or half-mast position. The flag should again be raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day.
