President Donald Trump slightly misquoted one of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's best-known speeches in a tweet commemorating the anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack.
Trump called the men "heroes" and said, "All American hearts are filled with gratitude for their service, their sacrifice and their presence here today".
Trump signed the proclamation at a White House ceremony attended by six veterans of the attack.
The message had a much deeper and darker meaning; it informed the ambassador that Japanese forces were about to attack Pearl Harbor.
In the days following, a stunned nation tried to grasp the enormity of the loss of 2,500 lives, with 21 American ships and 300 airplanes destroyed or damaged.
Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story will remember those who served in the attack of Pearl Harbor.
When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, several military members from Wisconsin were on hand. Over the next four years, Americans endured a long, bloody slog.
