This year is the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, which occurred December 7, 1941 and brought the US into World War II.

Here's the Wikipedia page

Here's the memorial website for this year's 75th anniversary commemoration

“On August 23, 1994, the United States Congress, by Pub.L. 103–308, designated December 7 of each year as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.  On Pearl Harbor Day, the American flag should be flown at half-staff until sunset to honor those who died as a result of the attack on U.S. Military and naval forces in Hawaii.”
