Half Staff Flags

For those that haven’t noticed, the flags, at least around government buildings, have been flying at half-staff (half-mast for you Navy types) in memory on SecDef Casper Weinberger on the event of his death.

Many of you remember him as SecDef, and his significant increases in defense spending under President Reagan, but most will not remember the job that earned him the nickname “Cap the Knife.”

The floor is now open for guesses/answers.
