Veterans' Day events took place across the Central and South Coasts

A number of events took place on the Central and South Coasts to honor those who served their country in uniform.

A flyover, a military vehicle display and live music started the program for the annual Veteran’s Day at Ronald Reagan Presidential Library – one of many events across the region marking the day.

Ken Meyer – a Navy Veteran who served in Vietnam as an intelligence officer on an aircraft carrier, says it’s an opportunity to share memories with other Vets.

"Veterans' Day is just a great day where we all get together and all have a chance to get together and just talk to other veterans and share memories," he told KCLU.

A national holiday, Veterans Day, celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans.

It was originally known as Armistice Day in the U.S. and coincides with other holidays including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day which are celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I.
