A man by the name of Scott Freund produced "Pearl Harbor...The Real Story", a two disk DVD. It shows on Facebook that the DVD can be purchased from the Pearl Harbor Memorial Museum in Hawaii, but also has clips you can view and lots of info. This particular DVD has survivors: Cecil Malmin, John Finn, Merl Resler, John R, Clare Hedrick (USS Arizona), Jake Jaekel, Jack Hammett, Frank Karas, George Larsen, Frank Zwolinski (my dad), and historian Daniel Martinez, and several others I didn't know personally. This DVD was done in Jan-Feb 2000 and recording lots of Survivors in their own homes. It is excellent.
