BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - From World War II to Iraq and Afghanistan, Veterans who served throughout our recent history took part in Saturday's parade down Delaware Avenue in Downtown Buffalo.

""Many, many veterans that come back said, 'hey, we never had a parade to honor us'. Now this is one to honor all the veterans. All veterans," said Parade Chair and Vietnam War veteran John Kasmir.

Hundreds gathered, waving flags and cheering for our nation's heroes, including a few who are veterans themselves.

""I'm still proud. This is the United States of America, and that flag, and God....I'm proud," said Vietnam Vet Charles Burns.
