The public can join veterans groups in Veterans Day services around the area tomorrow to honor those who died serving their country. Here is a list of some of the events taking place.
* The USS Sanctuary, a retired U.S. hospital ship that served in World War II and Vietnam, will host a special Veterans Day ceremony at 2:30 p.m. . A Vietnam-era helicopter will land on the ship and accept a wreath from Retired Marine Corps Sgt. Maj. John Meyers before circling over Fort McHenry and flying west to the Maryland Vietnam War Memorial. The wreath will then be placed on the water. A contribution of at least $5 is requested to help refit the ship before it travels to Third World countries as a children's medical center. The ship is located on Pier 5, Childs Street.
* In Annapolis, the 22nd Annual Massing of the Colors will be held at 2:30 p.m. in the U.S. Naval Academy Chapel. The event, sponsored by the Vice Admiral George C. Dyer-Annapolis Chapter, Military Order of the World Wars, will have armed services and veterans organizations, social and fraternal orders, patriotic societies and organized youth groups participating in the observance. Edwin Howard Simmons, a retired Marine Corps brigadier general, will deliver the principal address.
