BOSTON (AP) - Massachusetts is paying respect to the nearly 400,000 veterans who call the state home.

Veterans Day parades are being held Friday in a number of communities and Republican Gov. Charlie Baker helped lead a Statehouse ceremony that included a presentation of roses to Gold Star families.

Enoch “Woody” Woodhouse, a World War II veteran and Tuskegee Airman, delivered the keynote speech.

State Secretary of Veterans Services Francisco Urena said it was a day to recognize the sacrifices made by members of the armed forces and their families.

The Registry of Motor Vehicles announced Friday that it was making duplicate driver’s licenses and identification cards that include a “Veterans Indicator” symbol available to eligible veterans at no cost. They can be used to obtain special services available to veterans.
