We Remember Pearl Harbor

American Flag

On Dec. 7, 1941, the Empire of Japan launched an air raid on the U.S. Navy base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii

The United States declared war against Japan the next day. 

U.S Senator Deb Fischer offered her thoughts on this day.

"Eight decades after the tragic attack at Pearl Harbor, I hope you will take a moment to reflect on those who made the ultimate sacrifice that fateful day, and the sacrifices so many Nebraskans have made for our nation since then.

80 years after Pearl Harbor, December 7 is a day that continues to live in infamy. On Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day this year, please join me in honoring all of the American patriots who have made the ultimate sacrifice to defend our nation."

Governor Pete Ricketts issued the following statement for National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, which is observed on December 7, 2021. 

“Eighty years ago, our nation heroically responded to Imperial Japan’s surprise attack on Pearl Harbor,” said Gov. Ricketts.  “Americans in Hawaii bravely tended to the wounded and salvaged damaged ships.  Inspired by Pearl Harbor, the country came together as one to wage and win the Second World War.  Those who made the ultimate sacrifice on December 7, 1941, will never be forgotten.” 

Flags are currently flying at half-staff until sunset on December 9th in honor of the life and legacy of Senator Bob Dole.  On December 7, 2021, they will also be at half-staff in remembrance of Pearl Harbor.
