THEIR LIVES IN THE LINE OF DUTY.

ACKNOWLEDGES MEMBERS OF THE ARMED FORCES WHO DIED IN THE LINE OF DUTY.
  (B) ADOPTION. THE NATIONAL HONOR AND REMEMBER FLAG FOR FALLEN  MEMBERS
OF  THE  ARMED  FORCES SHALL BE THE OFFICIAL HONOR AND REMEMBER FLAG FOR
THE STATE OF NEW YORK. THE HONOR AND REMEMBER FLAG IS THE SYMBOL OF  OUR
NATION'S CONCERN AND COMMITMENT TO HONORING AND REMEMBERING THE LIVES OF
ALL  MEMBERS OF THE UNITED STATES ARMED FORCES WHO HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES
IN THE LINE OF DUTY.
  (C) PROCUREMENT AND DISTRIBUTION OF FLAGS. NOT LATER THAN THIRTY  DAYS
AFTER  THE  EFFECTIVE  DATE OF THIS SECTION, THE COMMISSIONER OF GENERAL
