I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same length of time at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.

In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this 16th day of April, in the year of our Lord 2013, and of the Independence of the United States of America the 237th.
