On Sunday morning, Dec. 7, 1941, the forces of the empire of Japan attacked America's naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. More than 2,400 Americans were killed and more than 1,100 were wounded. The attack sank four Navy battleships and damaged four more. It also sank three cruisers, three destroyers, and one minelayer and damaged 188 aircraft.

Remember and honor all of those who died on that day by lowering your flag to half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Pearl Harbor Day, Dec. 7.
