Southern Ute veterans lowered the flags in Veterans Memorial Park to half-staff on Wednesday, Dec. 7 in honor of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. President Barack Obama’s proclamation reads, “75 years ago, Japanese fighter planes attacked the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor, destroying much of our Pacific Fleet and killing more than 2,400 Americans. The following day, President Franklin D. Roosevelt called on the Congress to declare war and ‘make it very certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us.’
