MADISON, Wis. (WEAU) -- Gov. Scott Walker has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff to commemorate Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

The order is effective at sunrise on Thursday, December 7, 2017, and ends at sunset on that date.

“The attack on Pearl Harbor serves to remind us all that our nation’s blessings of freedom are not free: their price is paid willingly and selflessly by our courageous men and women in uniform,” said Walker. “No words can fully express our gratitude for the brave service members who sacrificed their lives 76 years ago today, or our gratitude for all our veterans and service members who have dedicated themselves to tirelessly defending our ideals and keeping us safe and free.”
