A Hero’s Welcome will be marching in the 4th Annual Philadelphia Veterans Parade again this year. If you’d like to join at this exciting event, please contact me (*protected email*) we will have a marching group w/ banner.
Our position is Bravo II; Parking is at a premium and very difficult to find. Give yourself ample time to park, walk and meet our group at 20th and JFK Blvd between 10-11 am. Make sure you tell the organizers you are with A Hero’s Welcome and are in the Bravo II group. There is a vehicle check point for any vehicles in the parade, NOT AHW MEMBERS MARCHING IN THE PARADE..please see map for routes, etc. Please note that due to the number of streets being shut down for the parade, you will have to travel east on JFK Blvd. from 30th Street Station to get to 20th and JFK.. If you need more clarification on how to commute to 20th & JFK, there is a map attached to this email detailing the route you should take. All marchers are also to report to 20th & JFK Blvd between 10-11am.
Jim and Pat Ray organized the POW MIA 50 State Flag tour going around the United States starting and returning to Grundy, Virginia . This was a huge endevor and with the help of people like Rosely Robinson and her Delaware TEAM… the tour was a success.

Come on down to 4th and Market to join in Fox 29’s Military Appreciation Day . The event was rescheduled due to Hurricane Florence and I’m sure it will be bigger and better than ever. Philadelphia closes Market Street in front of the studio and there will be lots of static displays of military vehicles and demonstrations set up by the Armed Forces. Also, lots of local troop support groups that are all ready to tell you what they do for our Military. Good food, great entertainment and of course… LOTS OF MILITARY . COME OUT TO SAY THANK YOU!
