Governor Brown Orders Flags At Half-staff
Observance of Pearl Harbor Day on Monday

Monday, December 7th is Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, and a good time to reflect on our nation's history.

Oregon's Governor Kate Brown ordered all flags at public institutions to be flown at half-staff in honor of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day from midnight to midnight on Monday, December 7.

"We benefit every day from the bravery and sacrifice of our United States service members, and especially owe a debt of gratitude to the people who served and gave their lives in Pearl Harbor and World War II ," said Governor Brown. "I encourage all Oregonians to take a moment to reflect on that sacrifice and express gratitude for the freedoms their fellow Americans have ensured through their service."

The White House also issued a national flag-order, and a President Trump has issued a full presidential proclamation.
