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.
Paralyzed Veterans of America
Disabled American Veterans
Wounded Warrior Project
Veterans Multi-Service Center

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