San Francisco Hosting Parade, Ceremony Events to Honor Veterans

San Francisco will honor Veterans Day with events on Sunday and Monday.

The San Francisco Mayor's Salute to Veterans Parade starts at 11 a.m. Sunday at Fisherman's Wharf on Jefferson Street and will proceed west to the reviewing stand on Jefferson at Leavenworth Street.

This is the 100th parade, which is organized annually by local members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

"The first was held in 1919 to honor the San Franciscans of the 363rd Infantry Regiment of the 91st Division, when they returned from France after the end of World War I," according to the VFW.

A Veterans Day ceremony will be held from 11 a.m. to noon Monday at the Korean War Memorial at Lincoln Boulevard and Sheridan Avenue in the Presidio, with the Korean War Memorial Foundation as one of the hosts.
