SDPHS MEMBERSHIP

Requirements for membership in the Sons and Daughters of Pearl Harbor Survivors, as they appear on the application are as follows: "Must be the son or daughter, the step-son or step-daughter, the adopted son or daughter, or the nephew or niece of a member of the United States Armed Forces stationed on the Island of Oahu or within three (3) miles offshore on December 7, 1941 at the exact time of the attack, 7:55 a.m. to 9:45 a.m.  Membership eligibility is extended to all the direct (blood line) descendants (grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-nephews, great-nieces)." 

                                                                                                                                                       HISTORY OF THE SDPHS

The concept of an organization for the descendants of Pearl Harbor survivors was presented on the floor of the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association (PHSA) National Convention on December 6, 1965. A second proposal was introduced during the convention on December 6, 1970 and approved.  The first chapter of the SDPHS was established as the Sunshine State Chapter 1 of St. Petersburg, Florida on December 6, 1972. The following year on October 20, 1973, the SDPHS became an independent nationwide organization, legally incorporated as a non-profit organization.  Today the membership has grown to over 3,500 with members in all 50 states as well as in foreign countries and serving in the military.

It would be GREAT to have you on board. The cost is $35 membership fee payable at the time of application and ANNUAL DUES are $15 due on or before December 7th of each year (this keeps you on our mailing list.)
