At their peak in the early 1990s, 21 survivors volunteered, said National Park Service historian Daniel Martinez.
Meeting a survivor enlarges or enhances the experience of coming to Pearl Harbor for many, Martinez said. It can give people a tangible connection to meet someone who was on site when the bombing happened.
Their numbers are dwindling, however.
"It's a fading fraternity. Right before my eyes we're seeing them disappear," Martinez said.

On Thursday, Daniel Martinez, chief historian for the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument, pointed out deterioration that has occurred in recent decades.
"So from 1985 when I first came here to today, there has been a progressional change to the ship, so the exposed areas of the vessel are deteriorating right before our eyes," Martinez said.
"I just saw the scans of the memorial, and I've got to tell you, I was literally blown away," Martinez said.
Martinez said when the next 3-D mapping is done of the Utah years from now, only minute changes may be noted -- but that type of detailed comparison will make it possible to overlap models and observe patterns of change.
"We're still going to be able to look at that as a reference point, and the park service is then given the opportunity to advise on the preservation of this vessel or the rate of deterioration," Martinez said. "If you asked the question, How long will this ship last? We may have over a period of years measuring points to give you a more accurate answer."
The park service, which oversees the Utah with the Navy, will be able to zoom in on elements of the ship such as the bow anchors or gun turrets and look at them from various angles.
"The only way for us to see the ship (in the past) was to dive on it, and now we're going to have the tools to look at it three-dimensionally," Martinez said.
Martinez added that "they'll image everything -- even to the sides of the harbor bottom," including some of the debris field around the Utah, which sits in about 45 feet of water.

"I suspect not many people have thought about this, but we're witnessing history," said Daniel Martinez, chief historian at the USS Arizona Memorial."We are seeing the passing of a generation."
Martinez said many Pearl Harbor survivors were disheartened by the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, "as if they had not done their job hard enough."
Martinez, the USS Arizona historian, likened it to another reunion 68 years ago - the final gathering of Civil War veterans in Gettysburg, Pa., when aging warriors in blue and gray shook hands and shared war stories.In 1938, as in 2006, the nation faced an uncertain future in a world gripped by conflict.
"The passing of that generation had its moment and we're going to have ours," he said.
