By The Staff

Gov. Susana Martinez released an executive order Friday deeming all flags in New Mexico to be flow at half staff from sunrise until noon in honor of Memorial Day.
Martinez, in her order, said the state is home to thousands of active-duty military, reservists and National Guardsmen, that deserve the state’s recognition, as well as those who have fallen for the country in the line of duty.
“The thoughts and prayers of the people of New Mexico are with them as well as a heartfelt thank you for their courageous services,” Martinez said.
Monday is Memorial Day, which honors the fallen troops in wars throughout the nation’s history. It was originally celebrated to honor soldiers who died during the U.S. Civil War.
Martinez will be at Fort Stanton Monday to celebrate Memorial Day. Fort Stanton will hold its 25th annual Veterans Memorial Service, held at its Merchant Marine and Military Ceremony.
Locally, a Memorial Day service will be observed at Guaje Pines Cemetery at 11 a.m. Monday.
Retired Reserve General Doug Anson will be the keynote speaker.
Along with Martinez, U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-NM) said in a press statement Friday that Memorial Day was more than a day off from work.
