 Governor Orders U.S. And State Flags Lowered In Recognition Of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

12/6/2010

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has ordered all U.S. and state flags displayed at state facilities lowered to half-staff the entire day of Tuesday, Dec. 7, in commemoration of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

“Our nation’s armed forces work each and every day to ensure our safety and defend our freedom.  We take this day to pause and honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  We shall never forget this day in our nation’s history,” said Gov. Tomblin.   

On August 23, 1994, Congress designated December 7 of each year as "National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day." The day honors the more than 2,400 military service personnel who died on December 7, 1941, during the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, by Japanese forces. The attack on Pearl Harbor caused the United States to enter World War II, which lasted until Japan surrendered on September 2, 1945.
