    Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day is observed every year on the annual anniversary of the Japanese attack December 7, 1941. Pictured is the USS Arizona Memorial positioned over the sunken battleship USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor. The attack claimed the lives of 2,334 service personnel and wounded 1,143. Public Law 103-308 authorizes the President of the United States to order the nation's flag to half-staff from sunrise to sunset every December 7th. Please participate in this annual tribute with your own Stars & Stripes in honor of all the sacrifices made that infamous day. If your flag is on a short staff, attach a black mourning ribbon to the top of the staff (not the flag itself) to signify your remembrance.
