Pearl Harbor Survivors Association will live on

The Pearl Harbor Survivors Association will continue for at least a while longer.

Association President Art Herriford today said about 100 members decided against disbanding. The group met in Waikiki a day before the Pearl Harbor anniversary.

Herriford says old age makes it difficult for members to organize their biennial meetings and handle other duties.

But the 88-year-old says members "don't want to throw in the towel right away."

The association instead plans to shrink a little, so it will have four district directors around the country instead of eight.

The association had about 18,000 members when it formed in 1958. It now has 3,000.
