Washington Gov.

National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day was created by Congress in 1994 in honor of those Americans killed or injured as a result of the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.

Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business or sunset on Monday, Dec. 7.

Other government entities, citizens and businesses are encouraged to join this recognition.
