Posted On December 07, 2017

Gov. Eric Holcomb has directed flags across Indiana be flown at half-staff for Pearl Harbor Day.

His office says flags should be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Thursday.

Holcomb also asks businesses and residents to lower their flags to half-staff on Thursday.

National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, also referred to as Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day or Pearl Harbor Day, is observed annually in the United States on December 7, to remember and honor the 2,403 citizens of the United States who were killed in the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii on December 7, 1941.

On August 23, 1994, the United States Congress designated December 7 of each year as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. On Pearl Harbor Day, the American should be flown at half-staff until sunset to honor those who died as a result of the attack on U.S. Military and naval forces in Hawaii
