State honors victims of Pearl Harbor
U.S. and Hawaii flags at the all state buildings as well as the Hawaii National Guard will continue to fly at half-staff today to mark National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, Gov. David Ige announced.
Eighty years ago today, 2,403 service members and civilians died during the early-morning attack on Pearl Harbor that prompted the U.S. to join World War II.
“Let us pause on this day to honor the courageous patriots and the sacrifices they made on this day 80 years ago, and let’s remember their surviving families and the sacrifices they have made as well,” Ige said in a news release Monday evening.
Flags are already flying at half-staff in honor of the late U.S. Sen. Robert J. Dole.
