Flags in Iowa have been ordered to fly at half-staff later this week. 

Governor Kim Reynolds order flags to fly at half-staff from sunrise on Friday to sunset on Saturday in honor and remembrance of former Congressman Leonard Boswell. 

Boswell passed away on August 17th at the age of 84. 

“Congressman Boswell will be remembered for his many years of public service to our state and for his service to our country,” Gov. Reynolds said. “He was an individual willing to reach across the aisle on many issues to make Iowa a better place. My prayers are with his family, friends and Iowans impacted by his legacy.”

They ask that the public and other government subdivisions fly the flag at half-staff at the same time to honor Boswell.
