November 10, 2016: NYC’s Veterans Day Parade

November 10, 2016 at 6:27 pm

Tomorrow is Veterans Day, a U.S. holiday that commemorates the signing of the armistice between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918 and the official end of World War I. In the 98 years that have passed, we take the day to remember and thank veterans for their service to protect our beloved Land of the Free. Here in Manhattan, the New York City Veterans Day Parade pays homage to our servicemen at home and abroad and allows New Yorkers to show their respect and support every November 11th. Held and organized by the United War Veterans Council, this year’s parade is sure to be an amazing event. Tonight, we discuss the festivities with Dan McSweeney and Ryan Hegg, two members of the council who organize the parade every year.
