Flags directed at Half-Staff in Honor of Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day


On Friday, Florida Gov. Rick Scott directed the flags of the United States of America and the Great State of Florida to be flown at half-staff at all local and state buildings, installations, and grounds throughout Florida, from sunrise to sunset, on Monday, December 7, 2015.

In honor and remembrance of the courage, selfless dedication and sacrifice displayed by the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces during the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor by Naval Forces of the Japanese Empire, which led America's entry into World War II.
                                          
"This 74th anniversary [of Pearl Harbor] marks a time for community, individuals, and organizations to gather across our Country and throughout the State of Florida to perform acts of charity, to pray, and to support one another as we honor and remember those who lost their lives on December 7, 1941", wrote Scott in a resolution dated December 4, 2015.
