Both President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump made small errors on tweets commemorating the attack on Pearl Harbor.
The day commemorates the attack by on a USA naval base on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, by the Imperial Japanese Navy and honors the 2,000 American sailors, soldiers, and Marines who lost their lives in the battle.
That's why, 76 years later, it's appropriate for the nation to pause and remember Pearl Harbor - and never forget the sacrifices in a catastrophic conflict that shaped our world today.
Sam Brownback ordered flags lowered from sunrise to sunset on December 7 in honor of Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.
In his speech marking the attack on Pearl Harbor, FDR called it "a date which will live in infamy". Much previous years, the ceremony will begin at the chapel on base and conclude with wreath-laying at the Pearl Harbor memorial.
Around 2,300 American servicemen died in the attack, with just over 1,000 more injured. The tweet was swiftly deleted from the @FLOTUS account and a second tweet posted with the correct date.
