Veterans and other members of the public are invited to join Mayor Keith Summey and City Council members Monday for a special Veterans Day ceremony at Park Circle. All veterans in attendance will receive a commemorative coin. They will also have a chance to swap stories with fellow veterans, and lunch will be served. Officials say North Charleston is one of two special Veterans Day 2013 sites designated by the Department of Defense and the Veterans Day National Committee. In 2012, organizers say more than 500 veterans attended a similar celebration.
