PORT ANGELES – The Coast Guard station in Port Angeles will once again host a regional celebration for Veterans Day.

The ceremony starts Saturday at 10:30 am.

It will feature a number of musical performances and a keynote speech from Retired Marine Corps Colonel Thomas Johnson on his role as an aviator. Johnson flew a record 506 close-air support missions in the A-4 Skyhawk in Vietnam.

Coast Guard station commander Mark Hiigel says it's an honor to host the ceremony again at the station on Ediz Hook.

The ceremony is open to the public. It's recommended you show up about an hour early in order to clear the security screening.

After the ceremony, there will be a cookie and coffee social sponsored by the Clamp County Veterans Association.
