UNDATED (www.incnow.tv) – Governor Mike Pence orders flags be flown at half staff in observance of our military on Armistice Day.

Saturday marks the 60th Anniversary of the Armistice that ended the Korean War.The armistice was signed on July 27, 1953, and was designed to end open hostilities in Korea.

But, because there hasn't been a peace treaty, the Korean peninsula remains in a technical state of war.

Governor Mike Pence ordered that all flags in Indiana be flown at half staff to pay tribute to the brave men and women who have defended our nation and freedom.
