The 17th annual Pearl Harbor Remembrance was held Saturday in Abilene.

People gathered at the Big Country Squadron at Elmdale Airpark to honor survivors of the attack and to remember those whose lives were lost.

The event included a first person account from one of the last living survivors, John Roddy.

He was aboard the USS Tennessee on December 7, 1941.
