Honoring All of Our Veterans...

Although the official date for Veterans Day, a day set aside to honor the men and women who served in our U.S. military, is November 11th, we started early in Philadelphia by holding a Veterans Day Parade and Festival on Sunday, November 5th.



A good time was had by everyone who attended as we honored the men and women who have served and protected our country.

But, let's not forget our military veterans who were not able to celebrate with us. They're the veterans who are struggling with trauma, addiction, illness, and homelessness. Their service is honorable, and they deserve our assistance and support.

Please offer a helping hand to those veterans. I've posted several websites for information.

Thank you for visiting today. And, to all of our Veterans, thank you for your service.

  1. Thanks so much for the wonderful post and links to visit. You're right, though we honor these vets every year, so many are unable to celebrate due to trauma and homelessness. Some have success stories, but many others don't.Thanks again and hope your Sunday is as fabulous as you are! Hugs...RO
