Sun City Vets Observe Veterans Day

Veterans Day is always special for the residents at Sun City-Hilton Head. Hundreds of veterans, along with friends and family turned out for the celebration. The golf cart parade is always a good time, and patriotic songs filled the air as the Hampton County High School band performed with the Sun City Singers.

Guest speaker Col. Robert Walsh says it's important that our youth know why we celebrate Veterans Day. "We want to make sure that our young people don't forget what sacrifices our veterans of today and yesterday have shown."

At 11am, a bell was rung to remember the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month in 1918, which ended World War I.
