A True American

From a farm in Illinois to Hawaii, Guadalcanal, Korea and Vietnam, Pearl Harbor Survivor Sterling Cale's military career has taken him around the world and back again. With a front row view of the attack, Cale bravely rescued men from the burning water of Pearl Harbor and collected bodies from the wreckage of the USS Arizona. His story is one of service, sacrifice and what it means to be a true American.

On the Small Side

The color and printing on this shirt are fantastic, as is the fabric. The fit, however, is not. My wife normally wears an XL/XXL, but went up to a XXXL as she wanted to be able to use it as a work out shirt and loves these to be loose and long. This one fits more like a small XXL, and is really short. So much so that she is now going to order a mens in hopes of a better fit.

Home of the Free Because of the Brave

My dad served in the United States Navy during WWII and I love Hawaii so it is only fitting that I share these two loves by getting this flag that was flown over Pearl Harbor for the 80th anniversary commemoration of the attack on Pearl Harbor. I am a huge Elvis fan and know that he held a concert which raised $68,000 in early 1960s to get the ball rolling for this memorial to be built. He too was a great patriot.

Amazing artwork

I purchased the print entitled Tree of Life for a friend who has a great interest I. World war 2 history. When I gave him this beautiful work oh art it brought this tough on the outside man to tears. The price is unbelievable for this quality of work.

Fantastic

This makes anyone proud to be an AMERICAN!

Completely satisfied.

USS Nevada BB36 Hat

USS Nevada The ship that attempted to get out of the harbor on Dec 7 1941.

I love the hat Got one for me and my DAR friend. We both attended the 75 th and 80th Anniversary Memorial of Pearl harbor. With the Honolulu Chapter of the DAR a wreath is placed in memory of our veterans of the Nevada at Hospital Point. Sadly it gets lost in recognition of the Arizona and other ships that day in the harbor and only by belonging to the DAR do we get access to the base to the site to honor our Sailors. I have family that have served in all conflicts since the Revolutionary War. I am very thankful to all our Veterans who provide us with our freedoms still today. Sharon Stingley

Proud too own

I first visited Pearl Harbor in 2005 and bought a flag. In the past 20 years I’ve been fortunate enough to buy many more . It’s an honor to support the Pacific Parks and an honor present an flag that has been flown over the Arizona. We are Arizona residents so it means a lot to us

Great Water Bottle

Love this water bottle. I bought a Rosie the Riveter water bottle years ago from another vendor. It recently got damaged, so I went searching for a replacement. The one I got from Pacific Historic Parks is even better than my original bottle. It has a straw to make if easy to drink from the bottle, and a carabiner to hook onto my pack or belt. Perfect!

Love it!

Perfect size, and so very special. I’ve had many compliments on it and it also starts conversation about my faith in Jesus

Battleship pencil Sharpner

I was very impressed with the detail of the pencil sharpener.
