READING, Pa. -

Veterans are being thanked in Reading.

Some veterans gathered at the Gus Yatron Postal Facility on North 13th Street for a special ceremony Friday morning.

The Reading High School Junior ROTC served as honor guard.

Veterans Day is Sunday. The goal is to honor living veterans of all wars and thank them for their service.

"The country would not be what it is today without those who served in the military, who have fought wars and kept the peace here and around the world and in the United States," said Diane Price, U.S. Army veteran.

Veterans said it's also important to support the families of our veterans and troops overseas.
