Every year on National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, Dec. 7, America honors those brave individuals who made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our homeland. It is also an opportunity to recognize those veterans who with strength and resolve defended our Nation and advanced the cause of freedom during World War II.
On this day all federal buildings are required to fly the USA flag at half-staff. Other entities and citizens are also encouraged to take part in honoring those American patriots who died as a result of their service at Pearl Harbor, by displaying their USA flags at half-staff on this day. Flags are to fly at half-staff from sunrise to sunset.
