ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton is ordering that U.S. and state flags be flown at half-staff to remember the attack on Pearl Harbor and honor the Americans who died in World War II.

Sunday marks the 73rd anniversary of the Japanese attack that killed about 2,400 sailors, Marines and soldiers.

Dayton has declared Sunday as “Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day” and ordered that flags at all state and federal buildings in the state be flown at half-staff from sunrise until sunset.
