The Greater Lafayette community is invited to come to the Pearl Harbor Memorial Program. It is happening at Riehle Plaza on Thursday, Dec 7.  at noon.

The attack happened 76 years ago during World War II. On this tragic day thousands of American service members and civilians were killed. The assault was led by the Imperial Japanese Navy.

A Lafayette man and survivor of the war will be at the event. The 102-year-old will toss the memorial wreath off the John T. Myers bridge. Those who come to the event are invited to toss a flower.

Governor Eric Holcomb has ordered all flags across Indiana to be flown at half-staff on Thursday. That's from sunrise to sunset.
