Governor Hutchinson issued the following statement:

“Today is a day of reflection on the tragedy that happened to individual lives and to our nation 75 years ago at the attack on Pearl Harbor. But while this is a time of reflection, we can also make it a moment of resolve—that we, in the United States of America, 75 years after the attack on Pearl Harbor, resolve ourselves to support the same freedoms that our fathers fought to preserve in World War II and that veterans across the nation have fought to preserve throughout history.”
