A gathering in the wiregrass honored the lives lost 68 years ago when Japan attacked the United States at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
Chester Faulkner survived the December 7, 1941 attacks that propelled the United States into World War II.
Faulkner and his family laid a wreath at Veterans Park Saturday in Dothan.
They were there to honor those who survived the bombing, but who have since passed away.
At 91 years old, Faulkner is one of very few Pearl Harbor survivors left.
“I think about it quite often what happened that day like waking up between 7 and 8 o’clock with our windows shaking and the bombs falling on wheeler field,” said Faulkner.
Faulkner is one of just three surviving members from the Alabama chapter of Pearl Harbor survivors.
