Houston Mayor Annise Parker invites everyone to join in the festivities. She has said in the past the City of Houston has held the course every year hosting this celebration while many other cities cancelled these types of activities. Recent times are finding many cities returning to the fold of holding a special celebration for their Veterans. Houston has 300K plus Veterans living in the city and surrounding areas. She asked all folks who work in downtown to come out to thank all of our Veterans for their service.


I think we all need to Thank Veterans all year long and not just on special days. I had several Vets come to my home for the Grand Lakes garage sale a few weeks ago and I thanked each one for their service.  I knew these guys were Vets due to the hats or clothing they were wearing. Each one was almost surprised that I was thanking them and all very grateful! All are really nice guys.
