THE BRONX - Veterans Day isn't until November, but some local vets held a parade of their own today to remember those who have fought and are still fighting.

The National Association for Black Veterans hosted its sixth annual parade today through the Bronx.

Not only did the veterans walk, but so did students from C.S. 211, a bilingual magnet school, with the help of its drill team and school band.

Local politicians also helped raise a new flag at a cemetery on East 180th Street in Bronx South Park, which is home to many former veterans who are now at peace.

Dolores A. Steele, from the Bronx Veterans Parade Committee, says that many of the older veterans are going through a lot and the parade gives them a sense of pride.
