HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has ordered flags lowered to half-staff in Connecticut in honor of Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

Flags will remain at half-staff until sunset on Monday.

The Dec. 7, 1941, surprise attack by Japan on the U.S. Navy base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii claimed about 2,400 American lives and pushed the United States into World War II.

Malloy says he wants to recognize the extraordinary sacrifices of all who served in Pearl Harbor nearly 75 years ago and the military members and civilians who died in the attack.

He says he also wants to thank those who served during World War II.

Flags are currently at half-staff in accordance with a presidential proclamation issued last week to honor the victims of the shooting in San Bernardino, California.
