Flags were flown at half-staff today to honor the 2,400 Americans killed in the attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii.

Today marks the 71st anniversary of the attack in which Japanese bombers took the U.S. Naval fleet by complete surprise. At Norwalk City Hall, veterans and their families listened as the names were read of all Connecticut servicemen who lost their lives.

More than 2,000 people attended a similar ceremony at the Pearl Harbor National Memorial in Hawaii.
