Details on the Beaufort Veterans Day parade, ceremony (Update: Coverage)

At last year's parade.

Update November 12: Lots of coverage of this year's remembrance events — and of the events in nearby communities.

WTOC has a report and video of the parade (watch that here) and of the ceremony at the Beaufort National Cemetery (watch that here). The Island Packet has a few photos and some words on the Beaufort event (get that here).

Meanwhile around the area: Ridgeland dedicated a new Veterans Memorial Park, Sun City had a ceremony, and Hilton Head also held a ceremony.

First reporting: Veterans Day is Friday, November 11, and there's a pair of events to attend in Beaufort.

Marine Corps Sgt. Major Carl R. Green (Ret.), a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom was selected parade grand marshall and Parris Island Commanding General Gen. Lori Reynolds will speak at an 11 a.m. ceremony at Beaufort's National Cemetery, at 1601 Boundary Street.

The parade will begin at 9:30 a.m. and will follow the downtown Beaufort parade route (map bellow).

The Whale Branch Early College High School Band will perform in both the parade and the ceremony. Other participants include several area high school bands and the color guards of each branch of the service along with marching military personnel. In addition, there will be participation from all local veterans service organizations and ladies auxiliaries. .

Various local business, school groups, civic organizations and fire departments will also participate as will state and local elected officials, the Water Festival Pirettes and the Patriot Guard Riders. A reception has been scheduled immediately following the ceremony at the AMVETS Post #70, 1831 Ribaut Road, Port Royal.
