Sisolak orders flags at half-staff in remembrance of Pearl Harbor attack

Updated December 8, 2020 - 9:05 am

Nev. Gov. Steve Sisolak ordered flags to be flown at half-staff at the state capital and all state public buildings and grounds from sunrise to sunset on Monday in recognition of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day to honor the lives lost in the attack on Pearl Harbor. The attack occurred on Dec. 7, 1941.

Sisolak also declared Dec. 7 as “Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day” in Nevada in honor of the lives lost.

“The proclamation also recognizes the state’s namesake battleship, the USS Nevada, which was stationed at Pearl Harbor during the attack and was struck directly by six bombs and a torpedo,” a release stated. “The USS Nevada was later used at the D-Day Invasion of Normandy and the battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa.”
