PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Philadelphia is marking this Veterans Day with ceremonies at three memorials honoring those who served the country in three conflicts.

Philadelphia’s Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Washington Square Park behind Independence Hall is the site of today’s tribute to those who fought and died in the Revolutionary War.

That ceremony gets under way at 10 a.m.

The Korean War Memorial at Front and Dock streets near Penn’s Landing is the site for an 11 o’clock ceremony paying tribute to the 610 service men and women who gave their lives in the Korean conflict.

And, at 12:30 p.m., the Philadelphia Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial at Spruce Street and Columbus Boulevard will be the site for ceremonies recognizing the 646 casualties of the war, including MIAs, from the Philadelphia region.
