On Sunday, November 11, 2012, the City of Houston will show support for our Armed Forces and celebrate the annual “Houston Salutes American Heroes” Veterans Day Celebration. Mayor Annise D. Parker has again partnered with the City’s Office of Veterans’ Affairs to host the third annual AT&T Veterans Job Fair and the second Walgreens Veterans Health Fair.
The annual “Houston Salutes American Heroes” festivities will kick off on the steps of City Hall at 10 a.m. with the third annual AT&T Veterans Job Fair and second annual Walgreens Veterans Health Fair, which is open until 2 p.m. A moment of silence will be observed at 11 a.m., followed by the 11th hour ceremony in memory of the WWI signing of the Armistice. The American Heroes parade will begin at 12:30 p.m. at Lamar and Bagby, proceeding north on Smith, east on Walker, south on Louisiana and ending at Dallas.
