Parnell Honors Pearl Harbor Day

Associated Press

Gov. Sean Parnell has ordered all state flags lowered to half-staff to mark Pearl Harbor Day.

He says Tuesday’s lowering of flags is to honor those who fought in World War II. He says the bombing of Pearl Harbor is a moment in history that will never be forgotten.

All U.S. flags at federal, state and public buildings are also to be lowered.

Flags will return to full-staff Wednesday.
