Thursday marks 76 years since the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.

Ducey took part in the Pearl Harbor Day walk, which started at Phoenix City Hall and proceeded to Wesley Bolin Plaza and the anchor from the USS Arizona. It was the greatest loss of life ever in an attack on a U.S. warship, the National Park Service says.

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 signed the proclamation at a White House ceremony attended by six veterans of the attack.

The event is not open to the public, but is planning on streaming it live.

Around 2,300 American servicemen died in the attack, with just over 1,000 more injured. Through the ups and downs of battles won and lives lost, the cry of "Remember Pearl Harbor!" helped maintain American resolve. "You had to do your job".
