PEARL HARBOR...THE REAL STORY

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.

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)."   (See note below regarding "Associate Members" below.)

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 $40 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.)  Associate membership is $15.

To start, download either of the two applications below - Lineage Membership or Associate Member.  Complete the application and then send to: Linda Hooks, National Registrar, 1414 Woodville Road, Mansfield, Ohio 44903  sixteenpaws@neo.rr.com     Phone: 419 526-0079

Be sure to include your U. S. mail address.

FOR LINEAGE APPLICATIONS, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO PROVIDE COMPLETE LINEAL DOCUMENTATION IN ORDER FOR YOUR APPLICATION TO BE PROCESSED.  THIS INCLUDES BIRTH CERTIFICATES, MARRIAGE LICENSES, DIVORCE DECREES, ETC., IF YOUR NAME IS DIFFERENT FROM THE SURVIVOR.  IF YOU DO NOT PROVIDE THE APPROPRIATE IDENTIFYING DOCUMENTS, THE PROCESS BECOMES QUITE CUMBERSOME.  INCLUDE EVERYTHING WHEN SUBMITTING THE APPLICATION.  THESE DOCUMENTS ARE NOT OPTIONAL, SO MIGHT AS WELL GET THEM TO BEGIN WITH, RIGHT?
