Chairman’s Message

The purpose of this Remembrance issue is to thank and honor our volunteers by focusing on them and their stories. Like most nonprofits, volunteers are the unsung heroes, the backbone of our organization. Inside, you’ll find stories of how volunteers, including our beloved Pearl Harbor Survivors, perpetuate the legacy of World War II and keep history alive by engaging with visitors from all over the world.

President’s Message

Honoring the Past, Inspiring the Future — the poignant theme of the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor resonated so true this past December when more than 10,000 people made the long journey to Hawaii to join us in commemorating the anniversary.

President’s Message

This fall issue of Remembrance conveys a very special message to our members and community as we ramp up to the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor this coming Dec. 7th. You see, it was not just an attack on Pearl Harbor … the human story goes beyond the brave men in uniform that day at the Naval Base, Hickam Field, Ewa Field, Kaneohe NAS and Ford Island. There is also an Oahu story that includes American citizens of Japanese ancestry who suffered untold hardship and would end up in a war fought on two fronts.

Chairman’s Message

Earlier this year, Hawaii Gov. David Ige convened a committee of Hawaii-based community leaders and requested that planning commence for the 75th Commemoration of the anniversary of the bombing that occurred on Oahu on Dec. 7, 1941. Pacific Historic Parks (PHP) has responded to the call and has dedicated significant resources and time to assist in this significant endeavor that will be marked by a series of events spanning Dec. 1-11 in Hawaii.

Pearl Harbor Gram

There are some of us still around that we want to talk to, and this gives us a fine way to do it.

Considering there were 84,168 uniformed personnel eligible for membership by their being on Oahu at the time of the attack on Dec. 7, 1941, we still have a fairly accurate count of 2,747 on the right side of the soil as of May 2016.
