Veterans Council secure permit for parade

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Leaders of the Veterans Council appeared before the Savannah City Council on Oct. 20 to apply for a parade permit for Savannah's traditional Veteran's Day Parade. Council couldn't refuse the group, especially the humble Veteran of the Year leading the parade.

"Well I've been around a while and I'm very happy to get it. I don't know how much longer I'll be doing this but I'll hang in there as long as I can," said Joseph Conners, Veteran of the Year.

The parade will be broadcast live Nov. 11 on WTOC.
