SALEM, Ore. -- Gov. Kate Brown orders all flags at Oregon public institutions to be flown at half-staff in honor of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day on Dec. 7. 

"We benefit every day from the bravery and sacrifice of our United States service members, and especially owe a debt of gratitude to the people who served and gave their lives in Pearl Harbor and World War II," Brown said. "I encourage all Oregonians to take a moment to reflect on that sacrifice and express gratitude for the freedoms their fellow Americans have ensured through their service."

National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day honors those who died after Japan's attack on Dec. 7, 1941. More than 3,500 Americans either died or were injured that day. Several battleships were also damaged including the USS Arizona and the USS Oklahoma, which sank.

The White House also issued a national flag order.
