Phoenix Veterans Day Parade
On November 11th, U.S.VETS – Phoenix staff and clients were proud to participate in the annual Phoenix Veterans Day Parade.
This year’s theme was Duty, Honor, Sacrifice, with an emphasis in honoring WWII Veterans. The event was the largest to date, hosting thousands of grateful onlookers. Staff and clients alike remarked that the day was very special, and so good to see the support of our nation’s veterans by Arizonians.
The float was a collaboration between U.S.VETS and Cloudbreak Communities, commemorating the infamous flag raising at Iwo Jima. Special thanks to the local Air Force Reserve base for the use of 2 HUMVEES, and thanks to all the staff and clients that put time into making the float and the event a great success
After the event, clients were treated to a special Veterans Day dinner by United for Change. Special thanks to Barb Sesate for putting such a great meal together for our veterans.
