Why are flags at half-staff?

From the guv’s office:

Governor Chris Gregoire has directed that flags at all Washington State agency facilities be lowered to half-staff Monday, December 7, for National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

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

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

The December 7 flag lowering is concurrent with the Governor’s December 1 directive to lower flags until close of business Tuesday, December 8, for the Lakewood police officers.
