Veterans Parade Today in Media!

Sue Serbin, writer for Delco New Network writes: The 51st Annual Veteran's Day Parade will begin at 11:30am today in Media. A terrific article in the Delco News Network paper about the annual Parade and the Veteran's Musuem which sits right downtown off State Street under Trader Joe's in the old Armory Building.

The parade is a wonderful event honoring our soldiers past and present. If you have a veteran in your family and are unable to make the parade, try to get him or her out to the Veteran's Museum, a beautiful tribute to our men and women who served this country. And as special added feature, many of the things on display such as uniforms belong to our local Veterans here in Delaware County, PA that served. The volunteers at the museum can show you around and you can watch videos of our local heroes telling their stories. If you are born and raised here it is even more special as you might have children that were never able to meet their grandparents or have lost them without hearing about World War II. This is a great opportunity to bring the children out to see and touch some of the items used.

The museum is free and open only on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from about noon to 5pm so please make sure it is open before you go. It is staffed mostly by volunteers so any donation is appreciated to support it's continued operation.

I encourage everyone and anyone who can to go out and support our Veterans. Remember those we have lost to protect this country, those who have returned injured and the soldiers who are serving now.
