Pearl Harbor survivor to attend 80th anniversary ceremony

ALOHA, Ore. — A World War II veteran who survived the bombing on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941 will be in Hawaii next month to attend the 80th anniversary ceremony. It's all because of a GoFundMe started by his daughter.

Ike Schab is 101 years old and now lives in Oregon. He was a musician second class in the U.S. Navy Band on a ship docked at Pearl Harbor during the attack. Schab said he has vivid memories of that day

"I was just getting out of the shower and getting my Sunday uniform on. I was hoping my brother knew where I was. He knew more about the islands, he could find me, but I did not know how to find him," Schab said.
