PHOENIX (CBS5) -
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has ordered the American flag to be flown at half-staff over all state buildings today and released the following statement commemorating the anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor:
"Today, Arizonans and Americans unite to commemorate one of our nation's most solemn anniversaries: the attack on Pearl Harbor.
"Seventy-one years ago, the course of human history was altered by a surprise, mid-morning assault by the Japanese upon American military assets at Pearl Harbor, including the USS Arizona. As predicted by President Roosevelt in his address one day later, the tragic events of December 7, 1941, have continued to 'live in infamy.' But while Americans were shocked and shaken by the attack, our country was not weakened.
"Rather, our Nation's response was uniquely American. Our resolve was strengthened. Our spirit was heightened. Decent, patriotic and heroic Americans - members of the Greatest Generation - came to the aid of this country, defending their neighbors and preserving the liberties that make the United States of America the greatest country on Earth.
"Today, let us honor and remember those whose lives were lost at Pearl Harbor. Let us offer special tribute to the 2,335 American service members killed in the attack, including 1,177 crewmen from the USS Arizona. Finally, let us pray for the patriots who answered the call to serve in World War II, as well as our brave men and women in uniform who continue to defend this country today.
"In honor of the U.S. service members who made the ultimate sacrifice at Pearl Harbor, I have ordered that the American flag be flown at half-staff over all state buildings from sunrise until sunset today, December 7, 2012."
