The Hopkins County Marine Corps League lowered the flags at the Veterans Memorial and other county locations this morning in honor of Patriots Day. Although it is not an official holiday, Patriots Day was enacted by Congress in December of 2001 in recognition of the more than 3000 people who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. The flags will be raised to full staff at 5:00 pm.
