Veterans Day Parade set for Saturday in Charleston
Charleston's Veteran's Day parade tomorrow is serving as a model for the rest of the US. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs picked Charleston as one of 62 regional sites across the country to be a standout city, and it's the first time Charleston has been picked. The parade will begin Saturday at 10 a.m. at the intersection of Kanawha Boulevard E. and Leon Sullivan Way. It moves north on Leon Sullivan to Quarrier Street, turns left onto Truslow Street and ends at Haddad Riverfront Park. Guest speaker, Cmdr. Adam D. Palmer, commanding officer of the ballistic missile submarine USS West Virginia, will say a few words at 11am.
