Melania Trump tweets, then quickly deletes, wrong Pearl Harbor date

On December 7, 1941, the USA naval fleet stationed at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, suffered a devastating attack from the air and sea.

More than 2,400 military personnel and civilians were killed and 1,178 were wounded in the bombing raid, with President Franklin D. Roosevelt declaring December 7 "a date which will live in infamy".

The Palm Springs Air Museum has a number of artifacts related to Pearl Harbor as well as warplanes from that era.

Around 2,300 American servicemen died in the attack, with just over 1,000 more injured.

The USS Arizona battleship was bombed and sunk during Japan's surprise morning attack on Pearl Harbor that pulled the United States into World War II. The war claimed the lives of more than 400,000 Americans and an estimated 50 million people across Europe, Asia, Africa and - of course - Hawaii, then an American territory.

The war, as we know, altered geopolitics for the rest of the 20th century and ushered in the nuclear age with the atomic bombs that forced Japanese surrender and ended the war in 1945. A couple thousand members of the public, Navy and National Park Service officials will join them.
