North Carolina is taking a day to recognize the estimated 700,000-plus veterans living in the state.
American Legion branches around North Carolina are honoring local veterans today after parades in Raleigh and Fayetteville over the weekend. N.C. Central University is among those that have invited veterans to speak at their events today.
Ann Jones of Fayetteville Technical Community College says the school is hosting its own Veterans Day ceremony Monday morning. She says veterans who take classes there use their experience to help fellow students.
