Beginning at 11 a.m. Saturday in Morehead City - Veterans Day - Carteret County observes the nation's 96th Veterans Day with the largest Veterans Day Parade in the state for the past three years.

"Veterans Day is honoring those who put their lives on the line to keep this country (free)", Rose said.

In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be held at the VFW Hall, 11 Avery Road.

Patrons lined up along Universal City Boulevard to Bowie Street to view the 47th annual Universal City Veterans Parade on November 4.

After the parade, the Andrews Veterans Association led a ceremony to honor veterans and their families at the Library Pavilion behind the Andrews Public Library.

Veterans Day was originally called Armistice Day because the "armistice" or agreement signed between the Allies and Germany ended World War I. It called for the cessation of all hostilities to take effect at 11 a.m. on the 11th day of the 11th month of the year in 1918.

The morning's events will begin with the City's Freedom Mile Run at 8:45 a.m., which serves as the kick-off for the parade.

The Veterans Day Ceremony pays tribute to those in the military during wartime or peacetime. Information about their military service will appear in the event program, and their photos will be featured in a commemorative slideshow.

All veterans are invited to join in the parade, says county Veterans Service Officer, retired U.S. Marine Corps Col.
