SC museum showing living history, vintage vehicles

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (AP) - In advance of the official Veterans Day observance, a Charleston museum is putting some vintage military vehicles on display.

The South Carolina Military Vehicle Preservation Club is showing 15 vehicles, including World War II-era Jeeps, troop trucks and half-track vehicles at the Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum on Charleston Harbor. There's also a collection of uniforms, weapons and military memorabilia.

The museum holds a vintage military vehicle show on Saturday.

Living history displays will show life at a Vietnam War Navy river support base and what life was like aboard the USS Yorktown, the aircraft carrier that is the museum's centerpiece.

Veterans Day is Thursday.
