Veterans Day is celebrated on November 11 every year in the United States in honor of the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918 that signaled the end of World War I known as Armistice DayVeterans Day commemorates  veterans of all wars. 

Honoring our Veterans is very important to BarberaCares Programs.  Gary Barbera says that he is honored and feels privileged to participate in parades that honor our fine Veterans and those currently deployed as well as how important it is to support fine organizations such as VMC – Veterans Multi-Service Center located in our own backyard.  If you want to donate to honor our veterans why not give to the VMC where 95% of your donation go directly to programs.  It is home of the free because of the brave.  We need to serve those who have served.” A special thank you to all Philadelphia Law Enforcement and Homeland Security who kept all safe.  to view photos from the 5th Annual Philadelphia Veterans Parade on 6ABC
