Gov. Mark Dayton on Friday ordered all flags at state and federal buildings in Minnesota to be flown at half-staff to commemorate those who have died while serving in the U.S. military.

"The United States of America and the State of Minnesota honor the spirit, courage and tenacity of generations of Armed Forces members and their families," Dayton's proclamation read. "As we pray for peace in our world, let us never forget those who have served on our behalf."

Flags will be flown at half-staff through Monday at noon.
