INDIANAPOLIS — Governor Eric Holcomb on Monday directed flags to be flown at half-staff to honor the life of Senator Bob Dole.

Flags should be flown at half-staff until sunset Thursday.

Dole’s wife, Elizabeth Dole, posted the announcement Sunday on Twitter. He was 98.

Dole overcame disabling war wounds to become a sharp-tongued Senate leader from Kansas, a Republican presidential candidate and then a symbol and celebrant of his dwindling generation of World War II veterans.
