It was on this day 70 years ago that Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. A day we will never forget.

In remembrance and honor of the lives lost Colorado flags will be flying at half-staff today.

From The Denver Post:

Colorado public buildings will be lowering their flags to half-staff in remembrance of the 70th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attacks.

Gov. John Hickenlooper ordered the flags to be lowered from sunrise to sunset.

At dawn on Sunday, December 7, 1941, six Japanese carriers launched a wave of 181 planes against Pearl Harbor, on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. The act spurred the United States to enter World War II.

In less than two hours 2,403 Americans were dead. 1,178 were wounded. 21 ships and 188 aircraft were also lost. [Military.com]
