    NBC Bay Area
    Since September 2001, the United States Honor Flag has paid tribute to those who have lost their lives in the line of duty. The flag flew outside the Hayward Police Department in honor slain Sgt. Scott Lunger, Monday, Aug. 3, 2015.

    The United States Honor Flag flew in the East Bay on Monday morning as part of a national tribute to fallen Hayward Police Sgt. Scott Lunger.

    The flag was flying for 15 hours outside Hayward Police Department headquarters, one hour for each year of Sgt. Lunger's service.

    Lunger was shot and killed last month during a traffic stop.

    The Honor Flag has traveled to over 1,000 events and services for fallen heroes across the nation. It was flown at Ground Zero after 9/11 and aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis.
