Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day is observed annually on December 7 to remember and honor all those who died in the attack on Pearl Harbor during World War II on December 7, 1941. Flags around the nation are flown at half-staff on this day and it is a popular time to visit the World War II Memorial in Washington DC. The President makes a speech encouraging all Americans to observe this solemn day of remembrance and to honor our military, past and present, with appropriate ceremonies and activities. Here are a few events in the nation's capital in honor of Pearl Harbor Day.
