CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A virtual Veterans Day ceremony will be shown online Wednesday, hosted by the city of Charleston, West Virginia, and American Legion Post 20, and Gov. Jim Justice is also offering a virtual ceremony.
Segments from Maj. Gen. Jason Bohm, the commanding general for Marine Corps Training Command in Quantico; Gold Star mothers; and messages from several elected officials will be included in Charleston’s program.
The ceremony will stream on the city of Charleston’s Facebook and YouTube pages at 9 a.m. Wednesday, the city said in a news release.
“While we will have two small ceremonies in person on Veterans Day, we wanted to provide a more robust ceremony that folks could view from the safety of their homes,” Mayor Amy Shuler Goodwin said.
The governor’s ceremony is at 1 p.m. Wednesday. It will be conducted virtually and will feature West Virginia Department of Veterans Assistance Secretary Dennis Davis and others.
The ceremony can be seen live on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook.
The city of Charleston will also stream on its Facebook page two small wreath-laying ceremonies at 11 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
