Preps for Vets Parade

Preparations are well underway for the first ever official Philadelphia Veterans Parade. Hard to believe it’s the first, given the city’s role in the nation’s history and the Armed Services, but, the first of what is to be an annual event will take place Sunday, November 8th. For details go to phillyveteransparade.org.  Congressman Bob Brady, City Council President Darrell Clarke, councilman David Oh, and Media Mayor Bob McMahon were among those announcing the parade and working to make it happen.

A grateful thank you also goes to Vietnam Veteran Serafin Natal, who after all these years received medals he was awarded for his service in the U.S. Navy.
