On Saturday, November 8, 2014, VetsHERD, Inc., Veterans Administration will be hosting the annual Veterans Day Parade in Buffalo. Each year, veterans parade down the street, from Delaware Avenue and Edward Street, to City Hall, as a show of respect for their country and those that have served it proudly. Those who are able to make it out to show their support for the veterans, are asked to attend the parade, wave a flag, and give thanks for all that our service men and women have done for us, and continue to do for us.
“Since the colonists took their muskets off the hearth and declared our independence from Great Britain, veterans have been part of the fabric of our nation,” said Patrick W. Welch,PhD, US Marine Corps (Ret), Veterans Advocate & Educator, Buffalo Veterans Treatment Court – Senior Mentor and VetsHERD, Inc. President. “Over 48 million Americans have served since 1775 and today we have about 23 million still alive. Veterans Day is the day designated to honor those who served in peace and war and this parade is an opportunity for Americans to say thank you to those men and women.”
