WISCONSIN  — Governor Tony Evers has ordered all flags to be at half-staff Monday in honor of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

The flags will be at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Monday in honor of the 2,403 Americans who died, and 1,178 who were injured during the attacks on Pearl Harbor.

“The attack on Pearl Harbor was a turning point not only for World War II but for our country, deeply impacting Americans across our state and nation,” said Gov. Evers.

The flags are lowered annually in Wisconsin and across the nation in honor of the national remembrance day.

“Each year, Wisconsin remembers the bravery and sacrifice demonstrated by Americans on O'ahu that day, and honors the enduring legacy of our veterans, including the more than 5,800 World War II veterans currently living in Wisconsin."
