Full Answer

The PHSA was officially recognized by Congress in 1985 with the intention of creating an organization of brotherhood through which survivors could meet, talk and share their stories with each other and the world. Its website is unique in that it does more than just tell a visitor what happened at Pearl Harbor. It shows firsthand accounts of Navy men who were there the day of the attack and lived to tell their tale. This catalog of over 70 stories and biographies of World War II soldiers pieces together the day in U.S. history "that will live in infamy." Each story tells an individual's experience at Pearl Harbor, often including photos.

The site states the PHSA's mission to commemorate the strength, courage, perserverance and commitment of the survivors of the attack. In keeping their stories alive, the PHSA strives to the memory of those who survived and those who did not, today and into the future.
