Governor Ducey's National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day Statement

07 December 2018  
Today is Pearl Harbor Day.

PHOENIX — Governor Doug Ducey released the following statement honoring the sacrifices made at Pearl Harbor: “On December 7, 1941, what began as a seemingly normal morning in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii became a day that would forever change the course of world history.

“While we reflect on the tragedy of the attack at Pearl Harbor, we also remember that amidst the destruction and chaos emerged some of the most incredible demonstrations of bravery, heroism and sacrifice.

“The State of Arizona feels a special connection because nearly half of the crewmen killed were aboard the USS Arizona. I encourage all Arizonans to take time to remember the 1,177 lives taken that that day on the historic battleship named after our state.”
