The city of Pittsburgh today honored local service members with the annual Veterans Day Parade. Veterans young and old marched along the parade route to cheers and applause from the crowd. Jack Denk, a Vietnam War Veteran, says many parades come through Pittsburgh, but none are as important as the Veterans Day Parade. Area high school marching bands and local politicians also joined in the parade, including Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl, Pittsburgh City Councilmen Doug Shields and Bruce Kraus, State Senator Jane Orie, and Congressman Mike Doyle.
