Mayoral statement about Pearl Harbor Day

Mayor's Office, News

As we remember the 76th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, we are keeping our WWII veterans close in our hearts and minds.  With the passage of time, the number of these courageous patriots is dwindling, but the magnitude of their sacrifices and devotion to the cause of freedom will never fade.

Our gratitude for their unflinching courage, unmatched skill and commitment to duty is endless. Governor Holcomb has directed flags be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset December 7 in remembrance of Pearl Harbor Day.

We thank all our veterans – those who made the ultimate sacrifice at Pearl Harbor and on the battlefields throughout WWII and our beloved veterans we still are fortunate to have with us – for all they did to protect our freedom and the quality of life we enjoy today. May God bless you all.

Mayor Shannon Kohl
