Throughout the years, members of SDPHS have been invited to attend the PHSA national conventions. At the Pearl Harbor Survivors 50th anniversary convention held in Honolulu the week of December 4, 1991 there were approximately 370 offspring of the survivors present. The 50th anniversary also marked the first time that sons and daughters marched in the traditional commemorative parade down Kalakaua Avenue. Symbolically marching after the Pearl Harbor survivors, the group’s presence was cheered by military personnel, civilians, dignitaries, and veterans throughout the course of the parade route.
