Update November 11: The Post and Courier has found more events happening today, Veterans Day; take a gander at the list (you'll need to scoll down once there.)
Update November 9:
To spectators, it may have seemed as if the Charleston Veterans Day Parade went off without a hitch. However, members of the Military Vehicle Collectors of South Carolina pulled about 20 historical military vehicles out of the parade when they learned the color guard would not be leading it.
Calling it a "dignity issue" that motorcycles were leading the parade, even though that has been the case for the past three years, the Military Vehicle Collectors of South Carolina were not having it.
Hop over to The Post and Courier to read all about it.
Update November 8:
The Post and Courier has a photo gallery of the Charleston Veterans Day Parade that travelled along East Bay and Broad streets on Sunday afternoon.
If and when more parade photos show up, we'll share the links here.If you've got some shots you'd to share with the community, feel free to drop a link to your set in the comments section.
