Charleston honors veterans with annual parade

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center officials have released the plan for this year's Veterans Day Parade.

The parade, which starts at 2 p.m. November 3, will again feature multiple marching bands, historic military vehicles, motorcycle groups, and Veterans service organization floats.

This year's grand marshal is Forrest Phelps, a 20 year Navy Veteran, who served in World War II and the Korean War.  He witnessed the first atomic bomb testing at Bikini Atoll and was awarded the Presidential Unit Citation after WWII.

The route will begin at Concord and Market streets, head west on Market to East Bay and Broad and end at Colonial Lake on Broad St.

Organizers say this parade is to honor and thank Lowcountry heroes of every generation, who selflessly served in our nation's military during times of peace or times of war.
