The proclamation is in honor of the 76th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor and the more than 2,400 Americans who lost their lives in the attacks.

The attack's immediate impact was to jerk America out of its lingering isolationism and into full-fledged combat in World War II.

First lady Melania Trump on Thursday tweeted the incorrect date of the Japanese bombing of the US naval base in Hawaii, which was the catalyst for the involvement of the United States in World War II.

To allow for additional writing and production time, HBO hinted that Game of Thrones may not return until 2019. Game of Thrones has had a pretty consistent schedule, airing a new season annually, since it premiered in 2011.

Each year the number of survivors from that surprise attack on Pearl Harbor grows smaller, but their courage and determination to fight must never be forgotten.

In his speech marking the attack on Pearl Harbor, FDR called it "a date which will live in infamy". A couple thousand members of the public, Navy and National Park Service officials will join them. On the airfields around Pearl Harbor, the Japanese destroyed 161 American planes and seriously damaged 102 aircraft.

The First Lady quickly resent her tweet with the correct date.
