HONORING AMERICA’S VETERANS
At Honoring America’s Veterans, we know we are in the midst of some challenging times, and how we brave through them is going to be critical to our country. To help continue our “battle-ready” support for veterans during the pandemic, please visit our COVID-19 resources.
This year to keep in step with worldwide health safety guidelines, Honoring America’s Veterans took to television and social media sites to engage with our veterans. You can watch the show here. We are grateful to all our donors for their support in our 2020 celebration, USA, A Beacon of Liberty.
FOR THE PAST 23 YEARS HONORING AMERICA’S VETERANS HAS CELEBRATED THE PHOENIX VETERANS DAY PARADE
THIS YEAR IS DIFFERENT. BUT OUR MISSION HAS NOT CHANGED.
Due to COVID, we will not be having an in person parade this year. However, we are here to honor and recognize our veterans and their service to our country. We hope you can join us as we live stream on Facebook and YouTube on Wednesday November 11, 2020 @ 11:00AM. We’ll also be airing our show on television and we’ll share the details with you as we get them.
“At Honoring America’s Veterans, it is vital for us to support our nation’s heroes through honor and recognition events. Our veterans tell us these events help them heal. We do so by honoring, celebrating, and recognizing them for their military service to our country.”
Paula Pedene, Executive Director, Honoring America’s Veterans
“When we came back from the Korean War, everyone turned their back on us. It was very difficult and very painful, and I carried that burden for over 60 years. And now, thanks to my experiences with the Phoenix Veterans Day Parade, I’m very proud to say that demon is gone. I am very grateful for the healing the Parade gave to me, and I will owe them a debt of gratitude for the rest of my life.”
Pete Haas, Purple Heart Recipient, Korean War Veteran
“I served In the Navy from 1994 until 2007. Personally, the Phoenix Veterans Day Parade helped me acknowledge what had happened to me during my service and to help me heal. The Parade helped me get past the hurt. The community gratitude the Parade provides heals us. Words cannot describe it.”
April Wise, US Navy Veteran
“As the people cheer and support you along the parade route, it gives you that confidence that what you did to serve mattered. Step by step along the route, it was a healing event for me.”
Pete Hegseth, Operation Iraqi Freedom Bronze Star Recipient, US Army Veteran
