Dublin flying flags at half-staff today in honor of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day


All city of Dublin flags will be flown today at half-staff in honor of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

On the morning of Sunday, December 7, 1941, the Imperial Japanese Naval Service attacked the Pearl Harbor Naval Station in Honolulu, Hawaii, killing 2,403 Americans, and injuring 1,178 more.

The next day, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt declared war on the Empire of Japan, and the United States entered World War II.

In 1994, Congress declared December 7 of each year as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.
