Nebraskans took part in “Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day” Friday at Auld Recreation Center, just west of the Veterans Memorial Garden in Antelope Park.

The Dec. 7, 1941, surprise attack by Japan on the U.S. Navy base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii claimed some 2,400 American lives and pushed the U.S. into World War II.

Congress has designated Dec. 7 as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, and each year the President signs a proclamation ordering flags to be flown at half-staff.

Gov. Dave Heineman is reminding Nebraskans to fly their flags at half-staff in observance of Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

Heineman says lowering the flag is a way to remember the victims and honor the heroes of Pearl Harbor.
