Patriots Point postpones Veterans Day celebration

By Live 5 News Staff email | Twitter

Mount Pleasant, SC (WCSC) - Tuesday's WWII Submarine Memorial Dedication Ceremony at Patriots Point was postponed due to anticipated inclement weather.

On Saturday, Patriots Point is hosting an "Honor Landing" for veterans. At noon, all veterans and their families are invited to a ceremony in the Hangar Bay of the USS Yorktown, which will feature veterans and family members of WWII, Vietnam and War on Terror.

The park is also allowing visitors in free from 9 am until noon in the hopes that it will encourage guests to visit and attend the Veteran Ceremony and stick around to speak to them afterwards.

After the ceremony, some of our nation's finest will be available to share stories and memories, as well as memorabilia, in the Hangar Bay from 12:30 pm until 1:30 pm.
