In addition to the parade, this year there is also a job fair for veterans. The city tells us 21 percent of the veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, and other overseas assignments are unemployed, underemployed or unable to translate their military skills into the job market. The job fair is also at city hall. It runs from 11am until 2pm.
There are deals for veterans all day today. We have a link to some of them on our SuperSaver blog. Find deals on food, clothes and a whole lot more.
