TRENTON - Governor Phil Murphy today ordered that the U.S. and New Jersey flags be flown at half-staff at all state buildings and facilities on Thursday, December 3, 2020, in honor of U.S. Air Force Captain Kelliann Leli, who passed away in a non-combat related vehicle incident while on active duty at Al Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates. Captain Leli was a resident of Parlin.
“New Jersey will sorely miss U.S. Air Force Captain Leli,” said Governor Murphy. “Captain Leli’s decision to serve was selfless, brave, and praiseworthy. Her state and her country are lesser for her loss. Tammy and I wish to express our sincere condolences to Captain Leli’s family and friends during this incredibly difficult time.”
