FRANKFORT, Ky. (Dec. 6, 2018) - Gov. Matt Bevin has directed that flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff on Friday, Dec. 7, 2018, in observance of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

This is in memory and honor of the more than 2,400 Americans who died in the surprise attack on the U.S. Fleet’s Pearl Harbor base in the early morning hours of Dec. 7, 1941. President Franklin D. Roosevelt declared Dec. 7, 1941 “a date which will live in infamy” and signed the Declaration of War against Japan the following day, Dec. 8, 77 years ago.

All individuals, businesses, organizations, and government agencies are encouraged to join in this tribute.

Although flags statewide are presently at half-staff in honor of former President George H.W. Bush, Friday's flag lowering will also serve to honor those lives lost in the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Flag status information is available at http://governor.ky.gov/flag-status/.
