HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Gov. Dannel Malloy has ordered all flags in Connecticut to half-staff in tribute to the 2,390 Americans killed in the attack on Pearl Harbor.

The governor says flags should be lowered from sunrise to sunset Wednesday, which is the 70th anniversary of the Japanese attack in Hawaii that brought the United States into World War II.

Malloy says it’s a time to reflect on one of darkest moments in America’s history and to honor the courage shown by the armed forces at Pearl Harbor and during World War II.

Many ceremonies are planned across the state Wednesday to honor those who lost their lives at Pearl Harbor, including one at noon at the Submarine Force Museum in Groton.
