(Harrisburg) -- It's Veterans Day and parades and other events are being held across Pennsylvania to honor those who have served in the nation's armed forces.
Most government offices and banks are closed for Monday's holiday.
In Pittsburgh, a nonprofit group that helps homeless veterans is providing a variety of free services, including eye exams, legal help, employment interviews, health screenings and housing assistance. The group called Veterans Place is providing free transportation to its Washington Boulevard center and is hosting a chili cookoff and a free lunch.
U.S. Senator Bob Casey calls Veterans Day a time to honor the men and women who have served in the military and a reminder of the federal government's obligation to support them.
