Whether the mans a hero or not, it's really a futile petition because the federal government can't order anyone to put flags at half staff, the power to order that solely belongs to state governments, and can be either be ordered by the governor or state legislature.

you are incorrect. The power to half staff the Flag beyond what is already listed in the Flag Code, is to be done by the President. State flags are by state direction. Check out USC Title 36 Chapter 10 sec 175 (m) http://www.usflag.org/uscode36.html#175
