Hundreds have gathered at Bay Pines VA in St. Petersburg to honor our veterans.
Around 11 a.m., one of the country's largest ceremonies began in the courtyard behind building 37 on the grounds.
It was free and open to the public, and many veterans showed up with their families.
Highlights of the ceremony included a musical performance by the Kenswick Christian school choir, a special parade of colors and traditional military presentations to include the posting and retiring of the U.S. flag, and a firing salute.
The guest speaker was retired U.S. Marine Col. Robert Chase Jr.
