This along with the Polio vaccination programme which Elvis highlighted which practically wiped Polio out for good in the US.
The highlighting of the Hungarian uprising as well.

A new plaque recognizing Elvis Presley’s role in raising funds to build the USS Arizona memorial at Pearl Harbor was unveiled yesterday. The unveiling took place at a private ceremony at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.

The date is incorrect on the plaque. Elvis performed the concert on March 25, 1961, not March 21.

According to Tim Gray, President of the World War II Foundation, the Elvis plaque was chosen to be displayed at the Hilton Hawaiian Village because “that is where Elvis always stayed when in Oahu. He held his press conference there prior to the concert and the hotel has preserved his suite there today. It’s called the “King Suite” and is a shrine to Elvis staying there often and his role in the Memorial effort. We know it will be seen by tens of thousands of people each year who visit the hotel and maybe that will inspire them to want to know more about Elvis’ role in the project.”

That date is just too embarrassing.
They have to change it, surely.
They've re-written history about an historical event that was recognising another historical event.
