As we endure the notion of family members and friends off to Afghanistan many feel guilty and agonize; wishing they could do something more to show support for military members. Saturday, November 9th, 2013 will provide you that opportunity in the Detroit Metropolitan area. This year, the Department of Veteran Affairs has selected Detroit as a forum to provide your support for our American Veteran Heroes. Our friends across the water in the Canadian Armed Forces would also appreciate support inferentially via media coverage.
The Annual Veterans Parade begins @ 9:00 a.m. with opening ceremonies commencing at 9:00 and the parade following at 10:00 a.m. The “meet up” occurs at 2951 Woodward Avenue. From there the parade travels south on Woodward, encircles Grand Circus and proceeds north back to its’ original meeting place.
Further information regarding the parade may be attained @ www.detroitveteransdayparade.org./
So, come on out and show your support for our local, national and international heroes. Should you be unable to attend you can head on over to Face book and give us a like @ https://www.facebook.com/MetroDetroitVeteransCoalition.
