The South End: Flags half-staff for Pearl Harbor

On this day, the US entered WWII. Had it not, the world might have looked very different 60+ years later, especially Europe.

The White House ordered flags to be displayed at half-staff at all state buildings and facilities in Michigan on Dec. 7 in observance of Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, according to a university e-mail sent to Wayne State employees.

The day is in remembrance of Imperial Japan’s attack on the U.S. Navy base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii.

According to the Navy, more than 2,400 Americans died during that attack. The attack caused the U.S. to declare war on the Axis powers and enter World War II.

Remembrance Day is not the first time the State of Michigan commemorated the raid on Pearl Harbor.

On June 12, Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm ordered U.S. flags throughout the state to be lowered to half-staff in honor of U. S. Navy Fireman 3rd Class Gerald George Lehman, according to Spero News. He was being returned to his hometown of Hancock.

Lehman, 17, died aboard the USS Oklahoma during the Pearl Harbor raid.
