The city of Pittsburgh will hold its 94th annual Veterans Day parade on Monday.
Tony Filardi of Overbrook served in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War and has been the chair of the Veterans Day parade committee since 1990.
Filardi said the parade is an important tradition that pays tribute both to veterans and to active duty military.
“It’s to honor all the veterans who served in the service and also the military people who are serving currently,” Filardi said. “After all, without them, our nation would not be free, because freedom is not free.”
