Gov. Haley Barbour has ordered Mississippi flags lowered to half-staff Monday in honor of the more than 2,400 Americans killed in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.

Mississippi flags on all state buildings and grounds will be flown at half-staff Monday from sunup to sundown.

Barbour says it is important to honor members of America's military forces who gave their lives in the defense of democracy.
